I am writing to announce the date of the sixth annual Next Opportunity at Work (NOW) Staff Career Development Conference! Central Human Resources is pleased to support this important community building and professional development event, which will take place on Thursday, July 19th at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel at the Berkeley Marina.
This is a wonderful opportunity to show your team how much you value them, while providing the resources, materials, and motivation they need to fully engage and perform at their highest potential. Please discuss this important development opportunity with members of your team and encourage them to participate in the full day of professional development in accordance with our UC Berkeley Policy regarding Staff Participation in Campus-Sponsored Activities and UC Office of the President Policy PPSM-50.
You’ll note this is the first year that the Conference is being held off-campus. Because of the great success of past years, and to allow for maximum attendance, we will be holding the 2018 NOW Conference at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel at the Berkeley Marina. Registration for all staff members is sponsored by UC Berkeley Central HR and will open in two rounds to optimize the reach to our campus staff population. The first round will open 300 spots on Wednesday, May 23rd at 9:00 AM. The second round will open the remaining 300 spots on Thursday, May 24th at 12:00 PM. After round two, a waitlist for the event will start.
NOTE: You will be emailed a registration link when registration goes live! Watch your email!
Please speak with members of your team soon; this conference fills up very quickly. Questions or concerns may be directed to Inette Dishler at firstname.lastname@example.org
