Louis Tam, Information Management

Thanks to Louis Tam, our training program can make Frontline Fundraiser trainings available for UA staff in the Canvas Course, FLF Training Library. If a fundraiser didn’t get hired until a week after the awesome training, or they were sick on the training day, or couldn’t make the trip from Bothell or Tacoma – or if they live on the east coast – they can still take advantage of the great professional development opportunities that Michele Norris or other UA staff thoughtfully curate. Along with Louis’s system administration skill, Louis brings past experience with videography to Advancement and generously contributes his expertise to making our training offerings richer and more available. Thank you, Louis!

Pam Logan, Human Resources

Kudos to Pam Logan for organizing this year’s Ethics Training. It’s never easy to plan and execute an Advancement-wide activity like this, but it’s valuable information for all of us and this year’s presenter was particularly engaging. Thanks, Pam, for pulling this all together and ensuring we have the understanding we need as state employees!

Kudos to Connie Bartlett and Brent Ciesliga for helping me with the changes in my office. Connie knows how to get everything done, how to find just the right furniture, and how to make this complicated process as easy as possible. Brent makes anything technological seem easy, especially to a Luddite like me. And when you add Kathleen Swensen to the mix, it’s an unstoppable team!

The 1st Husky Parent and Family Weekend was a HUGE success. This was in no small part due to the incredible hard work it takes to coordinate this kind of event. There were myriad activities and really interested and happy families. I’m so happy for you all, and so impressed!

THANK YOU for volunteering your time, expertise, and enthusiasm at the UW Career Fair to the hundreds of students and alumni who attended. We received plenty of resumes of potential candidates!

The excitement and passion that you conveyed around Advancement was clearly infectious. These students have a better understanding of Advancement and many are inspired by what they can do to help the University as a future employee or even as a future donor. Heartfelt thanks, everyone.

We couldn’t have done it without you—WE>ME.
