Inside Story for Friday, December 12, 2008

REMINDER: Dec. 1-15 Timecards Due Today

Due to the early pay date of Dec. 24, prior to the holiday break, the deadline for timecards for the period Dec. 1 through Dec. 15 is today, Friday, Dec. 12.

Estimate the hours as needed for Dec. 11 through 15 on the timecard. Any adjustments to the estimated hours should be reported later on a timecard noting the changes.

The processing time for the last payroll is shortened by the holiday break, so it is imperative that the timecards are turned in to Payroll today, Dec. 12, to avoid any employees not receiving their paychecks before the holiday break.

The Payroll Department thanks you for your assistance.


Roundtable sessions will be held at several College locations next week to discuss the future of the College. Your thoughts will be collected and considered for current and future needs and improvements. As a preparation for further and future discussions, we encourage you to think over these questions. The third question will be discussed at the roundtables.

The Plan & Planning Work Group is currently working to energize and effectively tap the thinking and information resources of the College, including our people. Two major areas of emphasis are inclusiveness/communication and embracing the future. Every College employee’s views are vital to the success of the College as a whole. As in any strong organization, the work of each person supports the work of another. Similarly, the thoughts and support of each employee are important as we continue to grow and evolve to meet the changing needs of our diverse community.

Roundtables will be held:

Monday, Dec. 15

  • 9 a.m., Fort Omaha Campus, Bldg 7, Room 107 
  • 2 p.m., Fort Omaha Campus, Bldg 7, Room 107

Tuesday Dec. 16

  • 1 p.m., South Omaha Campus, Connector, Room 249

Thursday, Dec. 18

  • 11 a.m., Fort Omaha Campus, Bldg 7, Room 107 
  • 4 p.m., Fort Omaha Campus, Bldg 7, Room 107 
  • 4 p.m., Fremont Area Center, Room 202 

Your individual thoughts on all the questions will be asked for at a later time as we move, collectively, further into the planning process for the future of MCC.

MCC Receives Timberland PRO® Community Service Grant

With the support of grants and by applying their construction and leadership skills in the community, students will enable Omaha area residents to maintain their independence and their homes.

Timberland adopted and uses the GREEN Standard as a guide for evaluating service opportunities. Regardless of the service done, this ensures commitment to excellence and environmental sensibility are infused in the review, planning and implementation of every project.
