University Staff Assembly (Feb. 15), welcomes UW Colleges colleagues

The University Staff Assembly will be Feb. 15 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in Phoenix C, University Union. A message from Chair Jan Snyder, “The UW-Green Bay University Staff governance committees are honored to serve the university staff body and to represent you in shared governance. It is our duty to share information with you and to provide an opportunity for input and feedback on issues concerning us all. We hope we have accomplished this through our open committee meetings and posted minutes, but the annual assemblies are a way to make sure this is happening. This year, it is our privilege to extend this invitation to our colleagues from our joining UW College campuses at Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan. We hope you will be able to join us in person, but for those who can’t we will have remote technology available for you to connect with us (that information will be coming soon). The assembly agenda is now available on the University Staff Governance web page (click on the 2/15/18 agenda link under Meeting Agendas).”
