Distinguished Visiting Alumni Program Welcomes Employment Law Professional to Campus
PLATTSBURGH, NY __Toni Anne (Tormos) Nichels will be on the State University of New
York College at Plattsburgh campus this week as part of the Distinguished Visiting
Alumni Program, sponsored by the Plattsburgh Alumni Association.
The highlight of her visit will be a presentation, "Topics in Employment Law: Misconceptions and Realities Affecting the Employer/Employee Relationship for 2007 and Beyond" on Thursday, April 26, at 6 p.m. in the Hyman and Frances Krinovitz Recital Hall in Hawkins Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
Since 2001, Nichels, a member of the Plattsburgh Alumni Association Board of Directors, has served as counsel for employment law and human resources at the Xerox Corporation. Her areas of expertise include compensation, benefits eligibility, disciplinary issues and negotiating contract terms and conditions. Following her graduation from SUNY Plattsburgh in 1988, she received her law degree from Notre Dame Law School in 1992.
While on campus, Nichels will also meet with faculty and students and will make guest presentations in several classes.
"It is a privilege to see Toni shining ever so brightly as a successful young career woman - full of the same energy and enthusiasm she had as a student," said Rose Anderson, executive director of the alumni association and director of alumni affairs. "We are all so proud of her and are pleased that SUNY Plattsburgh is a still a very important part of her life - 19 years after graduation."
The Distinguished Visiting Alumni Program, sponsored by the Plattsburgh Alumni Association, brings alumni back to campus to discuss their careers with students, faculty, staff and community members. Alumni share new ideas and become more involved in the academic mission of the College.
"The Distinguished Visiting Alumni Program is one of our best programs in connecting students with alumni and providing an opportunity for our alumni to reconnect and rediscover SUNY Plattsburgh," said Anderson. "Successful alumni who are recognized as leaders by their peers return to campus to share their expertise and talents with our students. In many cases, they have sat in the very same classroom, perhaps even with the same professor. Everyone benefits - students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members."
