Three Month Look-Ahead

futureThe Center for Communication & Creative Media (CCM) project will take much of our time over the next year. We are defining final space requirements including furnishings and technology needs. We are also working on a Capital Improvement Schedule with Sightlines for our facilities future needs and deferred maintenance schedules. We continue on the design/permitting phase on the Eagles project.

Here's a link to an interesting blog writting by an intern (from Champlain College) at Peterson Consulting regarding green craftsmanship at Juniper Hall.

Auxiliary Services is forging ahead to next summer! Sue is already contracting business for next summer so we can have another busy and great summer and we will begin marketing the new Champlain Room and the adjoining tent, making this a stellar new space for events and weddings. The Event Center will continue to serve faculty/staff/students and support them with their event needs. We have transitioned the senior coordinator position from Jodi to Howie Le, who is our main contact for events. However, for scheduling, use EMS or call the Event Center directly at x5957. Howie is busy planning our campus holiday party, working with on-site customers learning the many facets of our department.

Peter is in the marketing and planning stages of a number of academies for next summer, including Digital Forensics/Cyber Security, Governor's Institutes of Vermont in IT & Digital Media, and Graphic Design Portfolio Preparation. Peter's work continues to explore other professional conference and summer institute concepts with internal and external partners.

Our department as a whole is beginning to learn PieMatrix project management software, with Susan Mahany as our leader.

As always the CPAS team is here to serve you, help solve problems and consult in any way we can.
