The third annual UGA Staff Resources Fair will be held March 10 from 1-4 p.m. in Grand Hall of the Tate Student Center. Free parking will be available at the Tate Center parking deck.
Open to the UGA community, the event again is being organized and presented by the UGA Staff Council and the Vice President for Finance & Administration’s Staff Representative Group. Based on feedback from attendees, last year’s fair was a huge accomplishment, according to Savannah Hembree, an event co-organizer and chair of the F&A Staff Representative Group.
“We are always amazed at the positive response of the UGA community toward the Staff Resources Fair,” said Hembree. “It is great to see the different groups on campus really take advantage of the free marketing at the Staff Resources Fair to help promote their resources and the benefit to UGA staff members.”
This year’s Staff Resources Fair will bring together various on-campus partners who will provide information about services available to UGA staff.
“The Staff Resources Fair is a great way for our staff and on-campus partners to connect and share the vast array of resources available to the university community. I look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s fair, as it will be bigger and better than ever,” said Marie Mize, president of the UGA Staff Council. “I especially want to thank those who help plan and prepare for such a wonderful community event.”
In addition to talking with on-campus partners, fair attendees will have the opportunity to be included in various drawings for prizes.
Last year, more than 60 UGA departments and close to 700 UGA staff participated in the fair. Organizers hope that this year’s event will be just as successful, as many on-campus partners have already signed on to attend the event.
Funding and co-sponsorship for the Staff Resources Fair is made possible through various groups including the Office of the President, the Office of the Vice President for Finance & Administration, the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Office of Institutional Diversity, the Dean of Students, the Terry College of Business, UGA Dining Services, UGA Transportation & Parking Services, Equal Opportunity Office and the Georgia Center for Continuing Education & Hotel.
