*Please make your checks out to UC Regents, not Nicole; she's happy to take your money, but unfortunately, that won't hold your spot at the retreat. If you need a receipt, please include a note with your deposit.
For UC faculty: The UC system does not want cash or checks exchanged between campuses. Instead, it wants money transferred directly through the UC system. So, if you are a member of UC faculty at another campus and will be asking for reimbursement from your funds at your campus, UC instead would like us to do a direct transfer of funds. Please ask your departments ahead of time to plan whether or not you will be using UC funds before sending us a check. You can email the contact info for your accounting person to Nicole Kramer at firstname.lastname@example.org and she can arrange the transfers.
2) STS WORKSHOPS
They are developing some amazing workshops and will announce them as soon as they are confirmed. Faculty or postdocs: please let them know if you are interested in guiding an STS workshop (1-2 hours). The workshop can be on a topic of your choosing, which can be as inventive or straightforward as you like.

This event is organized by Science & Technology Studies (STS) at University of California, Davis
