Finance & Administration's Annual “New to F&A Day”
Friday, May 15, 2020
All staff members who have joined the Finance & Administration workforce since July 1, 2017 are invited to attend the division's annual “New to F&A Day” on Friday, May 15, 2020. The day’s activities provide information on the breadth and scope of Finance & Administration (which includes more than 1,800 staff members in six divisions); enlighten staff members on opportunities for interaction in the local community; and create a means for networking within Finance & Administration, to include meeting the leaders of the various divisions.
The concept of “New to F&A Day” was developed by the division-wide Finance & Administration New to F&A Day Committee, and is implemented with the help of staff from the Finance & Administration Staff Representative Group and the Office of the Vice President.
The day includes the following:
- Breakfast with Community Leaders
- Presentation by the Vice President For Finance & Administration
- Lunch with Finance & Administration Senior Staff
- Tour of Selected Facilities (Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) and the Georgia Museum of Art)
- Reception at the division-wide Ice Cream Social
The event agenda and further details will be released soon.
Below is information which may be useful to staff members new to the University and Athens and even to those who are not. Additional resource information will be included in participants’ packets the day of the event.
