ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO
On behalf of the UC San Diego Staff Association, I am pleased to invite you to the annual All Staff Picnic on Friday, August 21, 2009 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Town Square and Matthews Quad adjacent to the Student Services Building. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Our Strengths” and I believe it’s especially important during these difficult economic times to recognize and celebrate the many achievements and contributions of our staff.
The picnic will include a barbeque buffet, activities and entertainment, including the new “UCSD’s Got Talent” Showcase and information tables about our many staff associations.
A ticket is required for the free picnic buffet. Food tickets are available through the UCSD Box Office until Wednesday, August 19, for the first 3,750 staff members who request them. More information about the picnic may be found on the Blink website:
I encourage all staff to join us for this appreciation event. In order to attend the picnic, I am approving two hours of administrative leave with pay, and I ask supervisors to allow employees to attend, as long as the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties or patient care.
I would like to thank the UC San Diego Staff Association and this year’s volunteer Planning Committee for their hard work to organize this enjoyable annual event.
