Classified Council Corner

Classified Council President
Classified Council would like to thank everyone for supporting our fundraisers so far this year. The Holiday See’s Candy fundraiser is off to a terrific start and we will be selling See’s Holiday boxes the week of December 10th in the Administration Building on the first floor by the Information Booth. Please stop by and see what we have to offer or just to say hello. These fundraisers support Classified Council Student Scholarships.
Our annual Holiday Party will be at the Acapulco Restaurant in Glendale on Thursday, December 13. Everyone is welcome to come and have a jolly good time. This is the perfect opportunity to visit with friends and win fun raffle prizes! You can go to our website and download the invitation at: http://www.glendale.edu/classifiedcouncil/pdf/holiday2012.pdf
If you are a member, it is only $20 for the Holiday party. If you are not a member, it is $25. So, if you have not joined Classified Council, now is the time. 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, the Annual Classified Basketball Game, a birthday lottery ticket, and a free lunch at the end-of-year picnic.
Classified employees have done a splendid job this past year in so many ways. This past month, we were able to visit several different departments on campus to see how students, faculty, and classified staff work together. The Innovations Expo 2012 which presented the Title V Gateway and GAUSS projects was a truly eye-opening experience. What a fabulous illustration of how well we can all work together for the benefit of our students. Many Classified employees were involved in making this week of presentations possible, and I thank them.
On behalf of Classified Council, we wish you all a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year. We look forward to a new beginning for Glendale Community College in 2013.
