July WBN Luncheon: Speaker Update!

The WBN welcomes new speaker Bill Bridges, Director of Development at Utah Valley University, to the 11:30 AM July 14th luncheon at the Tahitian Noni Garden.  Bridges will still be speaking on the topic of “Enhancing Your Network through Community Engagement.” 

Bridges joined UVU in January 2003 as Assistant Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and moved to Institutional Advancement in 2008. An accomplished percussionist, he spent his early years playing in jazz clubs and other performance venues in the San Francisco area prior to moving to studio work for selected network programming on NBC and CBS, commercials, and Capital Records in Los Angeles. Bridges swapped the music scene for a career in financial services, where he spent 24 years as a successful bank executive.  Subsequently, he was appointed President and Executive Director of the North American Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point, where he directed the creation of one of the world’s largest dinosaur museum. Bridges completed his BS and MPA at Brigham Young University. He and his wife, Elaine, have 11 children and 44 grandchildren.
