Congratulations Angela and welcome to the YCSA board!
We had three very strong candidates, as was evident by the 1 point that separated each of them. Thank you Teresa and Jessee for participating and continuing to be a part of our staff association!
If you're new and have no idea what we're talking about (or keep asking yourself why you're receiving these emails), please visit our webpage at www.yc.edu/ycsa to find out what the staff association is all about. We'll have another newsletter coming your way December 1st, so if there are questions you need answers to, please feel free to forward them to me.
Have a great first week of November!
Andrea Annibale, YCSA President
Over the past couple months the YCSA board has taken a close look at the summer survey results and is working hard at implementing many of the ideas and suggestions brought forth. This newsletter is our way of showing you we're listening. As the months progress, we'll be asking staff members to share stories and wisdom as well as suggestions for future articles and training. Please feel free to email the board at any time.
