Thank you to my fellow admin friends for always being so incredibly helpful! Whether I need some last minute brand swag, recommendations for catering, or guidance on finding a meeting space on campus – they are always there to help. Thank you for being patient with my endless questions.

Jax Jackson, Campaign, and Jessica Foss, Advancement Services

Jax has been our primary UA Consolidated Calendar updater for the last several months, and Jessica is her backup. Between them they receive all of your Requests to update the calendar with your staff meetings and roundtables, alumni and donor events, and other shared calendar notices for the good of the order, and add them to the calendar brought to you in our intranet site. This is an invisible volunteer task that is provided for in no one’s job description – but they have stepped up and provided that service for us all. Thank you Jax and Jessica!

Karine Raetzloff, Advancement Services

I want to thank Karine for helping ATS out during the month of June (and a bit) with a big project that entailed ascertaining ALL of the current Advancement staff (not as easy as you’d think it should be) and compiling a list of them to be used by Nebula. In addition she added so much value by also helping to analyze our whole collection of access groups and Nebula folders, and making suggestions for eliminating unneeded ones and consolidating redundancies. Thanks so much, Karine!

The Star Award and the Marilyn Batt Dunn (MBD) Award  are ways that we recognize outstanding work, team collaboration, goals reached and unique contributions. Read about the awards, and nominate your colleagues!

A BIG Thank You to those who helped with yesterday’s UW Spring Career Fair! Through the Career Fair, we were able to increase awareness of Advancement to UW Students, Alumns, and Friends of UW and to potentially recruit them to join our team!
