In this capacity, Mr. Clair will be responsible for developing linkages between Memorial University and the community at large in the areas of regional policy and public administration.

Both undergraduate and graduate students from the Faculty of Business Administration competed at the University of New Brunswick CIBC Business Plan Competition held in Fredericton, NB from Dec. 1-2. The undergraduate team comprised of Maria Edwards, Sheri Gillingham, Melissa Smallwood, and Stephanie Smith (and coached by Prof. Wayne King) won first place and a $5,000 award for their concept It Fits Me Inc., a Newfoundland-based clothing retailer specializing in larger sizes for children aged three to 13 years. At the same competition, the MBA team consisting of Keith Bailey and Kevin Kelly (and coached by Dr. Dennis Hanlon) won the Best Financials Award, a category that was open to undergraduate and graduate students and private sector entries. Their venture, Rx Atlantic, was based on selling generic pharmaceuticals to the Canadian market through non-traditional outlets such as convenience stores and dollar stores.
