Working at CSU

CSU Events & Constituent Engagement recognized

January 2, 2013

On December 13, 2012, the Employee Appreciation Board recognized the employees working in CSU Events & Constituent Engagement. The recognition was for all the outstanding events this small group of employees manages each year. CSUEAB provided breakfast burritos, fruit, coffee, and prizes for each employee.

Exceptional unit

Lindsay McCarthy of University Advancement Finance nominated this unit for a variety of reasons.

Lindsay notes that, “In the past couple of years, they've more than doubled their responsibilities to produce events of the highest quality for the President’s Office, University Advancement, Alumni Relations, Athletics, and many colleges and units throughout CSU.

"This is an incredible effort for this small staff, as the events range from pre-game rallies, to recognition events, to formal galas and everything in between. Even with this large variety and volume of events, each one is planned and executed with style, quality, and spirit.

“But more importantly, I believe this group deserves to be recognized because each member serves the university with dedication, creativity, and untiring effort.

"The nature of this group’s work requires huge demands on personal time. I have worked with each member of this group for a few years now, and to a person, this group is exceptional.”

Board recognizes hard work, promotes spirit

The CSU Employee Appreciation Board, originally form in 1968, recognizes employees for their hard work and promotes community spirit among CSU faculty and staff through events such as breakfasts, luncheons, and ice cream socials.

In addition, the Board each month hosts a prize drawing for all faculty and staff who submit an entry form – including a coveted reserved parking space for a full month.

The board meets monthly during the academic year to discuss and plan employee recognition events. The main objective of the board is the monthly recognition of a group, entity, or college identified through nominations from fellow employees.
