The SUNY New Paltz American Marketing Association has been on a role, earning the silver award two years in a row at the Annual International Collegiate Conference in New Orleans. The executive board attributes the chapters success to the guidance and leadership of advisor Ted Clark. The most recent conference in March was Professor Clark’s last, as he is retiring from SUNY New Paltz after 28 years of teaching and mentoring. Richard Guido, President of the chapter, expressed the chapter is “deeply saddened by the news of Professor Clark’s retirement this year.”
Over the past week, students were given the opportunity to learn about the Bloomberg Terminal from Alexandria Shomber, an employee from Bloomberg. Shomber discussed both technique and advantages of the terminal. Students from a wide variety of majors within the School of Business attended the sessions and provided their feedback.
This is a great opportunity to SUNY New Paltz business students who are interested in using and learning about the program and the School of Business is very proud and excited to share this technology with students. Shortly after the information sessions, Dean Backhaus announced to students that the terminal has been opened.
The Hall of the Fame inductees is an elite group of individuals who have done extraordinary things for the community, and who have personally accomplished great things.

Although he is retiring after this academic year, Ted Clark continues to provide a welcoming atmosphere in his classroom, as the American Marketing Association mentor, and as a member of the School of Business.
