Member Resources Newsletter

August 8th, 2016
“August is one of my favorite months, when the nights are long and deep and crackling fire makes you think of many things at once and nothing at all at the same time. It’s about these heat and cold which allow you to touch the eternity for a few moments.” — Designed by Igor Izhik from Canada.

It looks like summer is coming to a close, and the school year is fast approaching. Are you looking for a job during the school year? A fellowship? Or simply some light work to make a little money and still focus on your school work? Then this newsletter may be just what you're looking for! Take a look at the opportunities presented in this newsletter and see if any of them are for you! Just don't forget to keep an eye out for the secret word...

3 FALL MANAGER TRAINING IS APPROACHING
 

Manager training is almost here! It runs from Saturday, August 13th- Friday, August 19th, 2016. You can find the specific times and dates you need to attend here.

Do your best to make it to your training sessions! If a manager misses a mandatory training, their unit incurs a fine, and the unit can choose to pass that fine on to the individual manager. The fine amount for each absent manager is $13/hour X the number of hours of the training. All managers that miss a mandatory training are also required to attend make-up training before their compensation can begin. The full policy regarding attendance at manager training can be found here.
