The leadership attributes that will be required of our nation's next leader will be covered in an open forum discussion titled "The Presidential Race: Who will Lead us into Tomorrow?" The conversation will take place from noon to 1 p.m., Monday, Nov. 3, in Montana State University's Strand Union Building room 233. Bring your lunch and questions to this MSU Leadership Topic Lunch.

A panel of enthusiastic and knowledgeable civic leaders has been assembled to encourage a thought provoking discussion. Mediated by Dr. David Parker, a professor of political science, the panel will consist of student representatives from College Republicans, Students for Obama and community representatives promoting both campaigns.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available. There will be an opportunity for questions and comments from the audience. Call the MSU Leadership Institute at 994-7275 for more information.
