Number of years of thought-leaders speaking to the St. Thomas community
This year marks the 30th year of St. Thomas alumni and friends being drawn to the First Friday Speaker Series luncheons to network and hear first-hand from the community’s most interesting “thought leaders.” Their often candid and always relevant messages offer a unique perspective on the common good, and divulge what’s next for Minnesota and beyond.
In order to continue this important series but protect the health of all involved, the 2020-21 First Friday season will be held virtually. All virtual events will be free to attend.
