Tacos, churros and Italian ice drew a crowd to the staff appreciation event on Sept. 29.
UCOP Staff Assembly was one of the 10 affinity groups greeting staff on Taco Tuesday.
Rob Judd, of the Project Management Interest Group, explains the finer points of project management.
Members of affinity groups talked about their events, passed out candy and stamped raffle "passports."
Lakeside Toastmasters was on hand to talk about the public speaking group.
The event was a great time to catch up with colleagues or meet new ones.
The Crafts Group showed off some of their handiwork.
Nearly 100 people got their “passports” stamped and entered the raffle, and a dozen won $15 gift cards.
The Franklin fifth-floor patio was decked out to greet the nearly 700 employees who came for the staff appreciation event.
Staff enjoyed chatting with tablers. In all, 10 affinity groups participated.
