Staff Appreciation Week (June 12 - 16) is next week!

VC Na’ilah Nasir is our Keynote speaker during Tuesday lunchtime and although the event is sold out in person, you can still join in online. Watch out for an email with a viewing link next Tuesday morning.

Summerfest is back on Wednesday from 11:30am - 1:30pm. There will be a dozen food trucks with food available the entire time... so no need to arrive right at 11:30am, or worry we’ll run out. Managers are encouraged to stagger their staff’s time-off to attend over the two hours as business needs allow.
