Administrative Professional’s Seminar: April 28

Offered again this year, we hope that our administrative support professionals are able to take advantage of this professional development and networking opportunity- the one day Administrative Professional’s Seminar, sponsored by the Germanna Community College, Center for Workforce & Community Education on Thursday, April 28, 2016. Many of our administrative support professionals have attended for the last four years and continue to rave about the experience! Please see the flyer for information on the conference and Registration Form.

While each department would be responsible for the registration fee for their employee(s), because of our ever increasing attendance, UMW will receive a $14 discount per person ($75 rather than $89). In order to receive the discount UMW must send 12 employees to the conference. Please return the registration form to Susan Brown at with your phone number in the email so that she may call you for payment. The fee includes the day’s events as well as a continental breakfast and boxed lunch. The registration deadline is April 14. Questions? Contact Susan via email.
