The University of Toledo’s Professional Staff Association aims to act as a liaison between professional staff at the University and the administration.
Since its beginning in 1992, the PSA has established a variety of committees, including a Professional Development Committee and Sick Leave Bank Committee, created and revised a staff handbook, and instituted a scholarship fund.
The meeting will highlight the year in review with an introductory statement from Elissa Falcone, chair of the Professional Staff Council and manager of graduate academic affairs in the College of Graduate Studies, followed by updates from committee chairs and discussion of upcoming events.
“This year, PSA has been very active through hosting several brown-bag workshops such as ‘Office Qi Gong for Stress Management and Your Well-Being’ and ‘New Year, New You: Refreshing Your Professional Profile,’” said Kari Dilworth, member of the Professional Staff Council and UT success coach. “We have also held social events, including a football tailgate. In addition to the annual meeting, we have elections and a social event at the Mud Hens still ahead for this summer.”
Wednesday’s meeting will include a silent auction and 50/50 raffle with proceeds going toward the PSA Scholarship Fund. The meeting will begin with opportunities to socialize and lunch while bidding on silent auction items.
PSA also has partnered with Reach Out and Read, an organization working to ensure children do not grow up without books. Attendees are encouraged to bring a book to donate to the organization.
“It is a great program that supports literacy for young children and their families,” Dilworth said. “In addition, UT staff member Lori Legendre is associated with this program, which makes it even more appealing for PSA to support.”
Lunch will be provided. Parking is available in Lot 43, and there is also a shuttle available.
