Tuesday, June 4 was Brown's 20th Staff Development Day! In honor of the birthday, Mother Nature bestowed upon Brown the most beautiful day imaginable. Campus was at its most spectacular and attendees' spirits were high. A number of SAC members were out bright and early, waiting at the SAC table to greet the gathering horde, handing out goodie bags, accepting entries for the gift basket raffle, and chatting about SAC. President Paxson stopped by to greet those at our table and the neighboring breakfast buffet lines.

After the morning town hall meeting, SAC held the first of what will become monthly open forums for staff. SAC members,  our adviser, Vice President for Human Resources Karen Davis, and session attendees all participated in a lively, interesting discussion about SAC past, present, and future. SAC particularly thanks Sharyn Whitney-Lennox for contributing her perspective as a past member of SAC and long-time staff member. We hope to implement some of the suggestions we received from Sharyn and others, and we hope more of you will join us at future forums to share your thoughts and ideas.

Congratulations to Pat Falcon and Julie Jewett, who won the gift basket raffle! Please visit our Facebook page to see pictures of Pat and Julie with their baskets as well as more pictures from Staff Development Day.
