PSO Reminder: PSO Social TOMORROW at the UW Club
TIME FOR A BREAK: PSO Social TOMORROW at the UW Club
The PSO concludes the year with an End-of-the-Year Social tomorrow at the UW Club on June 19th from 4:00 pm to 6:00 PM. (The UW Club, formerly known as the Faculty Club, is located on Stevens Way next to Hall Health, as shown in the map attached below.)
Standing Ovations Award winners will be honored at the reception and there will be an update of the recent PSO Board election. Drinks will be available (and free while tickets last) and food prepared by the Club will be served. While we be handing out awards and acknowledging Board members, the bulk of the meeting will be about meeting and greeting. From long experience, the Board knows that extraordinary things can happen from connections between staff from the various locations of the university.

The Professional Staff Organization (PSO), established in 1990, represents the issues and concerns of professional staff to the university administration, the campus, and our local community. All UW professional staff are members of PSO.
Over the years PSO has provided information to legislators, represented professional staff on faculty councils and committees ranging from academics to facilities, and worked to improve communication and build camaraderie among the professional staff throughout the university system. The PSO also collaborates with the UW administration on other issues relevant to professional staff.
To stay in touch with our members, we host meetings for staff in autumn and spring quarters, often with professional staff as speakers, to talk candidly and collegially about issues at the university. We also publish a biannual newsletter and award scholarships to help our members pursue professional development opportunities.
