Gift Services Team

Thank you to the Gift Services team for the thorough cleaning of the S1 staff refrigerators this week. The team performed this task, with humor and grace, as they found items with 2014 and 2015 expiration dates, but now the fridges are sparkly clean – kudos to the team!

Marcella Flores, Alumni & Constituent Relations

After months of planning, Marcella Flores launched our first ever program for alumni with children. Nearly 100 people joined us on campus last week for The College Search Process Seminar to learn more about the college search process from university experts. The bar has been set high by Marcella for programs in this new area!

Beth Altman, Information Management

Special thanks to Beth for keeping the Reporting Team afloat with Alex Ichinoe out on leave. The team kept up with ad hoc requests, took on some big fiscal year-end projects, and even managed to roll out new Tableau-based Campaign Progress Reports during this very busy two week stretch.

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!
