Center for Creative EntrepreneurshipCOLUMBUS, Miss. – The W will host the “SOS: Suppliers Opportunities Seminar” Thursday, Aug. 29 from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Claudia A. Limbert Assembly Room in Cochran Hall on campus.

 
The seminar will be presented by Center for Creative Entrepreneurship at The W and East Mississippi Community College.

The Suppliers Opportunities Seminar is designed to be of value to businesses that provide commodities, supplies and services to industries and distributors.  The goal for this seminar is to link small business sales to the local industry purchasing practices.  

“Often when industries are recruited, their economic benefit to an area is defined by the number of jobs they will create.  However, the marketing and sales opportunities they provide for businesses in the area sometimes go unrecognized,” said Lucy Betcher, administrator for the Center for Creative Entrepreneurship.

The seminar will include eight industries with table displays. In addition to The W, participating industries include Weyerhaeuser, Stark Aerospace, American Eurocopter, Mississippi State University, Flexsteel, MJF Enterprises and Weavexx. Seven of the industries will be speaking and presenting about their purchasing processes.

Betcher added, “We hope that this seminar will increase awareness of the opportunities for mutual benefits for both industries and businesses and that they will come together in an ‘everybody wins’ situation.”

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the CCE at (662) 241-6277.

Student NetID Password Update

MUW ITS will be implementing a new password policy for all University Student users starting Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM. The password change will be activated/required upon your next login after the enforcement has been enabled. The change will not lock or force you out if you are actively working on your computer.

If your password already meets the above requirements, you will still have to change your password once the new policy rules are officially enforced. Changing your password before Feb. 28 should be done if you have a security reason to do so, but not in response to jumping ahead of the Password Policy change date/time. Changing your password ahead of time will not negate the requirement to change it again on Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM.

After the new password policy has been enabled, Students will not be able to login to services (Portal, MUWnet WiFi, Office 365, Orgsync, etc…) that use NetID credentials until you change and update your password using the follow criteria.

MUW ITS will never ask for your NetID Password via email.
