How will Global Trade Survive Politics & Populism? 

Retired Four-Star General, Former CIA and NSA Director to Headline TIAA Global Trade Conference


This June 8-9 at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., TIAA, the Thunderbird Independent Alumni Association, will welcome General Michael V. Hayden to the keynote podium at its semi-annual business conference. TIAA’s  theme for this event is “How will global trade survive politics and populism?” Hayden will explore the clear but delicate connection between Intelligence and policy, and the ripple effects of state decisions on global trade. 


Leaders and managers working in all aspects of global trade are welcome to attend. To register for the TIAA June 8-9 conference in Washington D.C., go to


What is the future of Thunderbird?

With the campus move, new leadership, and program design decisions carving new landscapes, this question repeatedly captures our attention and challenges our conceptions of the Thunderbird Mystique. We know the pace of change is not likely to relent soon. TIAA’s first and foremost goal is to build and nurture a globally-minded and globally-operative alumni community. This mission becomes more critical as the vision for Thunderbird evolves within the ASU Knowledge Enterprise.


You can influence Thunderbird's future at the DC conference....

simply by showing up.


Your participation matters. In D.C., you can meet Dean and Director-General Dr. Sanjeev Khagram on Friday night, and ASU President Dr. Michael Crow Saturday night. Both will offer their visions for Thunderbird's future.  As a member-centric organization, we seek to represent YOUR interests as we build relationships with decisionmakers at ASU. Attending the conference in D.C. not only gives all of us a better standing, it also gives you an individual  opportunity to meet key ASU leaders, voice your opinions and ask your questions.


Filling an audience makes a statement.

This June, let's make our statement loud and clear.
