Richard Moore Instructs Class at UNCP
Treasurer Richard Moore visited the UNC Pembroke campus on Nov. 19.
Moore took time
during a multi-stop visit to Robeson County to guest lecture the School
of Business class of Professor Robert Guffey and offer a few insights
to UNCP students from his perspective as the manager of portfolio that
includes nearly $65 billion in public funds.
The class, which
is currently studying how to develop a business plan, heard from the
treasurer about the importance of making a good impression when presenting
your business ideas to potential investors or customers.
a large fund of money, most of which is the pension fund for the public
workers of North Carolina, I get called upon by many different companies
seeking to manage some of the State's money," Treasurer Moore told
the class. "The firms with professionally produced materials that
include information directed specifically to me are the most impressive."
it is the folks who have done their homework in advance - who have educated
themselves about our state, and about the State Treasurer's office -
who show they are serious about the work they are trying to get. I encourage
everyone one of you to consider these things before going into someone's
office to sell your ideas or products," Moore said.
In addition to his
stop at the Pembroke campus, Treasurer Moore also made stops at Fairmont
High School to present the principal, teachers and students with a banner
recognizing their significant progress in improving the test scores
over the past three years.
Moore also addressed
the Lumberton Rotary Club, presenting more than $1,700 to its members
from the Escheats and Unclaimed Property Program, a function of the
State Treasurer's Office that reunites businesses and individuals with
money and property that they have somehow lost track of.
