Staff Advisory Council meeting set for Sept. 8, staff invited

This is a guest post from Staff Advisory Council President Sarah Wojcik-Gross and Vice President Jennifer Abbinett:

Friends,

We are excited to announce that the 2016-2017 Staff Advisory Council meetings have been scheduled, and will be starting with a bang on September 8, where we will welcome Sophia Bredice and Mike Greco, from the Information Systems Department.  They will speak on two huge initiatives currently being rolled out, WakeWare and Software@WFU.

The meeting will be held in Z. Smith Reynolds Library, fourth floor auditorium.

It is our goal to build on the wonderful foundation that was already built for us and work to reinvigorate staff surrounding our purpose and initiatives.  One noted change is the date and time that we will be meeting each month.  The 2016-2017 SAC meetings will be held the second Thursday of every month from 9  to 10:30 a.m.  Our hope is that we are able to bring speakers to our meetings that you want to hear from, and to learn more about the exciting events and initiatives happening at Wake Forest. We look forward to a wonderful year and hope that you will join us! As always, non-SAC members are welcome to attend the meetings.

Please do not hesitate to contact us (sac@nullwfu.edu) with your concerns and ideas.  We want to hear from you!
