UMSA are also planning a Re-Launch event on Thursday 10 September 2009 between 12 noon and 2pm. ALL staff are invited to come along and view the new facilities which UMSA has provided for its members.

There will also be:

  • Details of what UMSA has been up to in the past few years, view pictures of events and outings.
  • Details of all UMSA events planned for the remainder of 2009.
  • Details of classes, where teachers will be on hand to discuss their particular class.
  • The opportunity to let us know what you want from UMSA - why not join the committee!

There will be a light lunch served on the day for all attendees so if you plan to come along:

The UMSA committee has worked hard to get the new facilities up and running, so please show your support, ALL STAFF are welcome.

And finally congratulations to Jonny Crook from the e-Learning Team, Ellen Wilkinson Building, who won the UMSA logo competition.
