Chairman’s Welcome Welcome to the 2010 Northwood University International Auto Show, the largest new car, outdoor Auto Show in North America. This year our theme is “Electrify the Drive, Sparking a Global Revolution.” Our theme not only concentrates on the race to solidify an electric vehicle, but also focuses on how the car manufacturers want you to feel when you enter their car. They want you to feel something exciting and new, to give that “wow” feeling. Also, it is no longer just a race between the normal heavyweights of the automotive arena. There are new cars coming in from Europe, China, and new manufacturers’ in the U.S. It is also a race to see how costs can be reduced, miles per gallon increased, and quality increased in the process. The vehicles that we have on display this year show the manufacturers dedication to those standards. We have over 60 manufacturers displayed this year and over 500 cars. This show simply does not “happen” every year. This year a 12-member Executive Board led the show, and has been working hard for the past 10 months. From there students serve as captains and team members for each vehicle brand. The show is run in a corporate structure, with students filling all of the positions from the top to the bottom. We have over 600 students working the show this weekend, doing everything from serving food, parking cars, and working the displays. We have averMidland’s Premier Art Gallery aged over 50,000 guests per weekend over the past 3 years and we are hoping to present the Voted The Best Place to Buy Original Art show to at least that many people this weekIn the Tri City Area. Features: end. We will show you that there is something for everyone, from tractors, boats, daily driv- Local and worldwide artists, fine art, hand-blown glass, ceramics, one-of-a-kind jewelry, fashion acccessories ers, concept cars, sports cars, and classic cars. and much more.

As General Chairman for this year’s show, I would like to personally welcome you to the 2010 Northwood University International Auto Show. We thank you for your support, and we hope to see you around the show! Sincerely,

Brandon Postema General Chairman PAGE 4

Administration Welcome Welcome to Northwood University’s 47th Annual International Auto Show. This is a very special weekend for us and we are very happy that you are part of it. As you may know, we pride ourselves on doing things a bit differently at Northwood. As a business school, we offer a rigorous curriculum that equips our graduates with the knowledge and skill sets required to lead organizations across industries and markets. While we employ traditional resources and tools to accomplish this goal, our mission includes a commitment to offer much more than lectures and examinations. Indeed, we provide our students numerous opportunities for leadership development and experiential learning as well as the chance to grow and share with people from around the world. Our annual International Auto Show is a prime example. The largest new car outdoor event in North America, Northwood’s International Auto Show features over 500 new cars vehicles and hosts some 50,000 visitors. The three-day event also generates an estimated $2.5 to $3 million in economic impact for the Great Lakes Bay Region economy. That does not include the millions of dollars it inspires in auto sales following the event. As you can easily imagine, an event of this magnitude requires a great deal of planning and coordination. That is why we take such pride in pointing out that it is organized and managed entirely by Northwood University students—over 600 of them—from our different degree programs; and none of them receive payment or credit for their participation. All this points to something else that makes us unique: The Northwood Idea. There are a number of fine business schools throughout the world today. Very few, however, offer degree programs that incorporate the virtues found in the Northwood Code of Ethics, values such as: integrity, respect, honesty, responsibility, freedom, empathy, spirituality, and achievement. Very few are built upon the belief that free markets and free persons are the primary foundations of a vigorous economy. At Northwood, we practice a healthy skepticism of large and powerful government because we think history has clearly demonstrated that such structures move rapidly from being of the people to being over the people, and freedom is lost in the balance. In an era when many pundits claim that capitalism is dead and that the government is the driver of the economy, we think the principles of The Northwood Idea are more important than ever. As more and more people look for sound leaders capable of restoring the American Dream, we at Northwood University are doing all we can to educate them in the classroom and through learning and fun-filled experiences such as the International Auto Show. Again, welcome to Northwood. Have a great weekend,

Keith A. Pretty, J.D. President and CEO
