Human Resources Online Network Meetings

Online Network meetings are intended for Human Resource partners and liaisons across campus who are interested in learning about administrative procedures, changes, and updates that affect the University. This group is designed to help you do your job better by communicating information to your departments and colleagues. Nearly 500 employees join the online Network meetings, which are held the first Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. via GoToMeeting online. Meeting participants can ask questions via the live chat during the meeting. If you would like to receive monthly agendas and a link to join these meetings, please email Bevin Anacker or call the Office of Human Resources at (775) 784-6082.  Connecting for the first time is easy and takes about one minute.
