We will be celebrating the following staff service milestones.

Service Year Milestones Service Highlights


A Service Awards honoree is a staff member who has achieved 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 or 50 years of service credit during the current fiscal year (July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023). A list of 2023 honorees can be found here. Service Credit accrual and eligibility information can be found here.

For this year only, we have also invited all milestone service honorees from 2022, 2021 and 2020 to participate.

PLEASE NOTE: Special honoree seating on the floor of the Bren is limited. 50, 45, 40, 35, 30 and 25 year honorees will be seated on the floor and will walk the stage, have their name read aloud, and have a commemorative photo taken. Depending on the number of 50, 45, 40, 35, 30 and 25 year honorees in attendance, 20 year service honorees may also be seated on the floor and may also walk the stage as space permits. Otherwise, they will join all other honoree years (15, 10, 5, 3 and 1) and will be seated in special sections in the Bren, closest to the floor, and they will be acknowledged during the ceremony.
