WINTER 2011 Professional Development Day

All offices on campus will be closed Friday, January 28, 2011 so that faculty, staff and managers can participate in workshops and an all college meeting. Faculty participation is optional. All fulltime Foothill staff and faculty will receive professional growth credit for participation. Part-time faculty are also invited to participate and will be paid if they must miss a scheduled Friday class to attend. The program will begin at 9:30am, lunch will be provided, and all workshops will end by 3:30pm.

Please RSVP your attendance through the Meeting Maker invitation sent by President Judy Miner or by email to Annette Stenger so that we can accurately plan for lunch.
