Support Staff Advocacy Committee thanks members for participating in the SSAC Planning Survey a few weeks back. Out of 400 Support Staff members we had 140 responses. Gift card winners were: Marjorie DiVece, Dining Service; Hope Marden, Housekeeping; and Joyce Welt, Development.
New Committe Members: with three SSAC commitee members stepping down, we are grateful to these individuals who will join the committee in September: Kelsey Tardiff, Annual Giving; Martie Janeway, Art History; and Moe St. Pierre, Dining Service. Thank you to Mike Grim, Andrew Cushing, and Lauren Sweetman and our most recent Chair, Deb Infante, who stepped down in January to focus on the Workplace Advisor Program.
