Support Staff: Give, Grow, Play Logo Contest

The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) and Organizational Learning and Effectiveness (OLE) are thrilled to announce the Give, Grow, Play event for Support Staff planned for late June 2013. To kick things off, Support Staff are invited to enter the Give, Grow, Play Logo Contest before February 28th to be eligible to win their choice of an iPad Mini (16GB, Wifi) or a Nexus 7 tablet.
Please view the details and criteria for the Give, Grow, Play Logo Contest for more information.

We would like to thank the 764 people who took the time to respond to our survey and shape the plans for this event. The event title, "Give, Grow, Play!” was selected by the steering committee to capture the intent of the event and the variety of activities available to help us connect as a community and learn through doing. As we begin booking speakers and finalizing the program, we want to offer a sampling of the events and highlight some of the lead-up activities we have planned.

GIVE – You will be three opportunities to come together, give back to the community, and learn from charitable and humanitarian organizations. You can participate in the ‘Giving’ activity through: the Corporate Challenge Blood Drive, a Habitat for Humanity build in Edmonton, and the Food Drive for the Campus and Edmonton Food Banks.

GROW - The event will include the usual conference-style program with speakers and short workshops. The event will have two identical days of programming, giving you lots of flexibility to attend what interests you.

PLAY – The event will wrap-up with a BBQ and social event in Quad.

More information will be provided later in the year about the event. If you have questions, or comments contact us via email at org.learning@ualberta.ca.
