The Spring Evening Chancellor's Staff Forum

To: UCSC Staff

From: Ricki Carr, Staff Advisory Board Chair

All UCSC staff are invited to the Evening Staff Forum with the Chancellor on Thursday, April 1, 5-6:15 p.m. at the Kresge Town Hall.

. This is the first Open Staff Forum of the 2010 calendar year.

. We are holding it at 5 p.m. to give the evening staff a better opportunity to hear and interact with the Chancellor, but we encourage day staff to attend as well if they are able.

. Chancellor Blumenthal will address staff about issues such as budget, furloughs, and layoffs, the UC retirement plan, and the important role that advocacy is having in this budget climate.

. There will be a question and answer period following his opening remarks. To ensure that your question is heard, we encourage you to send in questions to by Monday, March 29. Questions will be read anonymously.

. This event will be available on the web with live audio streaming and will be archived for later review. Check out for more info.

As necessary, managers and supervisors are encouraged to provide release time to employees to attend this event.
