The Changing New Brunswick Conversation Series was presented by the University of New Brunswick in conjunction with its 225th anniversary celebrations.  It is a continuation of the Next New Brunswick initiative begun in 2004 by then UNB President John McLaughlin.  The well attended series met its goal of fostering discussion about issues of importance to the province.

The series of conversations was funded by a bequest from J. William Andrews, who was born in Milltown, N.B., in 1931.  A UNB alumnus, he graduated with a bachelor of arts with first class honours in economics in 1952.  Mr. Andrews was lifelong employee of CIL/ICI/PCI in Montreal where he worked as an accountant.  He died in January 2005, leaving one quarter of his estate to his alma mater.
