Submitted by John Ruberson

Benefits Updates:

The annual benefits updates will be 10 to 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, October 31, in the K-State Student Union. The State Benefits Update will be in the Big 12 Room and the Federal Benefits Update will be in Room 227.

Since it is the last day of state health insurance open season, hopefully most people will have made insurance decisions. But there will be some health insurance information as well as reminders of other benefits.

The federal benefits update will include general information regarding federal benefits.

Reminder - Active Shooter and Critical Incident Workshop

Everyone is invited to the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) training 2 to 4 p.m., on Monday, October 30, in the Wildcat Chamber, formerly the Little Theater. This training, presented by the K-State Police Department, explains citizen response to active shooter and critical incidents.

Registration, via the annual conference registration website, is requested but not required.

The Wednesday morning opening session will be streamed live, so personnel across the state can watch the speakers — Conference Chair John Ruberson, Provost April Mason, Dean and Director John Floros, Associate Director Gregg Hadley, and Associate Director and Associate Dean Ernie Minton. The log in will be posted to the annual conference website.

We will use Guidebook for the conference mobile app. It will allow you to view the conference schedule and create your personal schedule. Directions on how to download and access the app coming soon.

Those who attend the Resource Fair/Reception/K-State Research and Extension auction will be eligible to win prizes. Good food, great information, incredible auction items, prizes, plus networking. What a deal!
