On Tuesday, April 5, JMU’s Financial Management Association (FMA) members gathered at Festival to participate in the club’s networking cocktail etiquette hour. Tassie Pippert, Lecturer for Hospitality Management, was on hand to guide the students in proper etiquette for business cocktail parties. After a brief introduction, students were given the opportunity to mingle with finance and business law departmental faculty to practice their networking skills and receive advice from faculty with extensive business experience such as Pam Drake, Mark Graham, Daphyne Thomas, Ron Rubin, and FMA Faculty Advisor Kayti Schumann. Throughout the hour, FMA members received advice ranging from entering conversations, asking appropriate questions, plate and drinking glass etiquette, body language signs and politely exiting conversation groups. Response to the night was positive with many members expressing gratitude for the chance to practice these skills prior to beginning the internship and job application process.
