Cincom and CEO Tom Nies to Be Honored in D.C.

Center for the Study of the Presidency Announces the Cincom Scholar Fellowship

WASHINGTON, DC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 4, 2005 -- Cincom Systems and its CEO, Tom Nies, will be recognized and honored during the Center for the Study of the Presidency's 39th Annual Awards Dinner in Washington D.C. at the J.W. Marriott Hotel Capitol Ballroom, 1331 Pennsylvania Avenue. The event, "Celebrating Civility and Inclusive Leadership," coincides with the establishment of the Cincom Scholar Fellowship granted to the University of Cincinnati for student involvement in the Study of the Presidency Fellows Program.

Twice each year, this unique Study of the Presidency Fellows Program brings together top students from the best schools to Washington D.C. for an immersion into public policy. The students meet with White House and Congressional leaders and write original papers on the subject of the presidency.

The Center brings together experts from government, academia, and the corporate world to discuss key issues facing the presidency. Although program initiatives change from time to time, all Center activities rest largely upon the following four pillars:

--  Presidential Leadership
--  Organizing for Leadership
--  Executive-Legislative Relations
--  Public Service
    
"Tom Nies has established the Cincom Scholar Fellowship for students from the University of Cincinnati. Tom embodies the dynamic leadership we wish our Presidential Fellows to emulate as they begin their first career steps. We are pleased to welcome this public-spirited individual and the University of Cincinnati to our Fellowship," says Dr. David M. Abshire, President, Center for the Study of the Presidency.

The Cincom Scholar Fellowship will give a University of Cincinnati student the opportunity to grow and learn from the hands-on, enriching experience of the Fellows Program. The first topic of research for the Cincom Scholar will tentatively revolve around changing and improving tax policies to stimulate growth of mid-to-intermediate companies, foster job creation, drive innovation, and enhance U.S. competitiveness.
