SUBJ:            Staff Recognition and Development Day – May 8, 2019

The 2019 Staff Recognition and Development Day (SRDD) takes place Wednesday, May 8. The longevity and awards program begins at 10 a.m. in the Wood Center ballroom. 

The SRDD Committee has organized three presentations in the afternoon. A staff lunch will be provided at Wood Center, and the day will end with an ice cream social.

It is important to provide opportunities for recognition and fellowship.  I ask that you forward this memo to your deans and directors, and encourage supervisors to allow their staff members to attend. If your staff cannot take part, please make time to recognize their hard work in another way. 

We must recognize the challenging times at UAF and the cumulative effect of ever-increasing workloads on our employees. We must also take time to acknowledge and celebrate achievements, and let our staff know that we appreciate all they do for this university.
