We are pleased to invite UBC staff (Vancouver) to the:
11th Annual Staff Welcome Back BBQ
Thursday, September 19, 2013
11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Flag Pole Plaza
Hosted by the President’s Office and Human Resources, and produced by Ceremonies & Events, this event welcomes staff to the new academic year and is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a complimentary BBQ lunch, live entertainment by the Mazacote Latin band, information booths, and the camaraderie of your staff colleagues.
HOW TO REGISTER
Please send in a reply to Archana Harit, email: firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the event. The RSVP deadline is Friday, August 23, 2013.
Based on your online registration list, the Ceremonies Office will send the appropriate number of wristbands via Campus Mail to your department contact person Archana Harit in early September. You will be responsible for picking up the wristbands from your department contact person.
Staff who miss the August 23 registration deadline can still register on the day of the event by providing their full name, department, and employee number at the onsite registration tables. (Note: food cannot be guaranteed for day-of registrants.)
This event is for UBC employees with “staff” appointments (not faculty or student appointments). Please contact your HR Advisor or Associate if you have questions about employee eligibility.
SUPPORT ZERO WASTE
Help make the Welcome Back BBQ waste free (well, almost)! Please encourage staff to bring a water bottle and recycle or compost everything at the event (except straws and plastic wrap). Onsite sustainability attendants will be available to help and answer questions.
SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES
Staff who attend the BBQ are encouraged to share their experiences and tweet photos using #staffbbq.
