Classified Council Corner

Classified Council President
As President of Classified Council, I would like to welcome you to the Fall 2012 semester. Classified Council is an organization for classified staff, confidential employees, and management. Professional growth, networking, and social activities are sponsored by Classified Council as well as philanthropic opportunities that benefit students. We are dedicated to the social and professional growth of all classified staff. Our goal is to enhance your work experience through activities that are not only fun and exhilarating, but that also promote good fellowship and camaraderie.
These are the lectures that Classified Council is planning so far for this academic year: Halloween, Orangutans, Planetarium and Kid’s Science Center, Occupy L.A, Homeboy Industries, and Composting – (did you know we have a community garden under development up by the parking structure?). Look for our emails advertising these events.
We will be having our annual Tupperware fundraiser starting in October and our See’s Candies fundraisers in November and March. As you know, most of our fundraising is to support our Classified Council Student Scholarships.
Our annual Holiday Party will be at the Acapulco Restaurant in Glendale. All members will receive their invitation in November.
If you have not joined Classified Council, please do so. For only $7 a year you can help support student scholarships and participate in social and professional activities. The annual fee of $7 goes toward the many activities scheduled through Classified Council, a discounted price for the Holiday Party, free Bingo during Classified Employees’ Week, a birthday lottery ticket, and a free lunch at the end-of-year picnic.
