COVID-19 and The A.C. Nielsen Summit

We have decided to postpone the 2020 A.C. Nielsen Alumni & Friends Summit due to the COVID pandemic. We made his difficult decision after consulting our alumni, our external advisory board, and the Wisconsin School of Business. The safety and health of our alumni and industry partners eclipsed our desire to host the Summit as scheduled.

Offering the Summit in a virtual format would not have met our primary event goal of fostering alumni engagement and lifelong learning—which are best accomplished in person. We hope to host the Summit in Fall 2021.

Though we are disappointed, we do believe postponing the event is the right thing to do. Our matching donor has generously extended the matching fundraising campaign until the next Summit

We are discussing creative and innovative ways to connect our alumni, external advisory board, and industry friends with our students to support the exceptional engagement fostered by the summit. As those opportunities evolve, we will certainly keep you informed.
