The Administrative Support Toolbox Series is designed to help UTSA administrative professionals complete their many departmental duties by providing detailed information about the financial, academic, communication and human resource areas of the university.
At the special event, 26 graduates of the series enjoyed typical British tea fare and learned about etiquette and event planning from guest speaker Maxine Farrimond, manager of special projects in the UTSA Office of the President. Farrimond discussed etiquette and protocols that are essential to observe when staging events with international guests.
Forty-five people representing offices around the university have completed the series over the last several years and were invited to the tea.
Guests included Terry Allison, Silvia Barta, Canda Brown, Vivian Coleman, Victoria Cruz, Martha Gomez-Gonzalez, Caron Kiley, Cary Kopecky, Rosalinda Luera, Martha Luna, Charity Meier, Judy Olivarez, Maria Ramos, Elizabeth Raymond, Diana Rivas, Jennifer Snellgrove, Rosalinda Stead, Blanch Torres, Melissa Trevino and Cheri Wiese.
The Administrative Support Toolbox series begins again in June, so look for more information in the upcoming Training and Development newsletter in campus mail or visit the Training and Development Web site.
