Travel Program Staffing

May 1st, 2009 by Pauline Ranieri, UW Alumni Tours

Everyone within the UW community has been hearing about the various UW lay-offs expected due to tightening of budgets, decreasing funds, etc. Unfortunately, the UW Alumni Association has been directly affected and has had to eliminate three positions – one of them from UW Alumni Tours. Today, was a sad day around the office as we had to say goodbye to valued staff members, including Deanna Nicoli who has been working in the travel program for almost five years. If you’ve called our office in the last five years, you’ve most likely spoken to Deanna and have experienced her professional, cheerful attitude. Or, you may have even traveled with her to Turkey, Peru, Provence, India or on another alumni tour that she hosted during her tenure here. We will all miss her and wish her the best of luck!

If you’d like to get in contact with Deanna and send her your good wishes, please send us an e-mail at uwaatour@u.washington.edu and we will forward the message on your behalf.
