Upcoming Events & Opportunities for Staff
The Community Relations Committee has been busy creating projects for the staff. Check out the plans for this semester including coffee breaks and a walking competition and learn more about the events that occurred in the fall. Involvement in these community based events is fun and rewarding. Have an idea? Contact Val Nelson.
Do you have something to share about yourself...or a colleague? Any artists, actors, entreprenuers, or volunteers in your office? Someone doing interesting or meaningful work off-campus? Brag a little. We will highlight staff extra-curricular activities in the next e-news. E-mail Margie Connor with the details.
Department Spotlight: Facilities

Next Staff Assembly
Please email questions, concerns, even complaints (or praises, whichever the case may be) to firstname.lastname@example.org . There is also a Bear In Mind suggestion box in the Faculty/Staff dining room. One of the goals of the Staff Assembly is to open up the lines of communication, and make available an avenue for voices of the staff. This is one way to be heard. The next meeting of the Staff Assembly will be Wednesday, March 5 in Kaleidoscope from 10:00 to 11:00 with refreshments in the Atrium starting at 9:30.
