Dear Department,
Beverly Errede and I are seeking nominations for this year’s Staff Excellence Award.  As you know, this is a yearly award given out to a BCBP staff member who has not only performed an excellent job but has gone beyond what their position description lists as their normal duties.  Please note that we have two categories for nominations, Administrative Staff and Research Staff.  We encourage you to nominate an individual for both categories.  To assist you, we have provided an attachment to this email with a list of individuals in the Department who are eligible for each category.
Criteria for nominating an employee include:
  • Teamwork
  • creativity and innovation
  • positive attitude
  • enthusiasm
  • productivity
  • flexibility
  • leadership.
The nomination should be typed using the nomination template attached to this email and include some details regarding why your candidate should be the Staff Employee of the year.
Please email your nomination to Beverly Errede (  She will collect the nominations and have them reviewed by a committee formed of faculty, students, and post-docs within the department.
Since the department will host a Holiday Reception this year, where we hope to announce the awardees, the deadline for submitting your nomination is December 1, 2022.
Thanks for taking a moment to nominate someone and please do not hesitate to contact me or Beverly Errede if you have any questions.
Jean and Beverly
