SAC President Coordinates Univ. of Arizona
The University of Arizona Staff Advisory Council President Claudia Arias stepped in as Coordinator for their Third Annual "On Our Own Time" National Arts Program® Employee Art Exhibit. Motivated to get their participation numbers up Claudia got to work spreading the word. Taking all employees into account she approached the publicity from several angles, one of which included taking interesting stories from the previous year’s artworks and artists to create news articles. These articles were then blasted out once a week for several weeks leading up to the registration deadline. The details about the upcoming exhibit were all noted throughout the stories, which also included live links to the registration form and the NAP website. The Show was also posted via memo’s on the University website, printed mailers and on the exhibition calendar for the Gallery of the Student Union Memorial Center.

Claudia’s hard work paid off and she was able to go from only 45 artists in 2012 to a total of 113 for this year’s show! With plans to showcase the event at their annual conference and discussions about how to grow the show even larger next year, we are sure that the University of Arizona has landed the absolute right person for the job. A good coordinator can make all the difference and those that benefit are the employee community and their families. It is obvious that Claudia is dedicated to showcasing the employee’s talents and incorporating their personal lives into their work environment. She was focused and determined to hit the 100 participant mark and she not only met but exceeded our goal and for that we applaud her.
