Employee Council 
Employee Council meetings are a great way to keep up with news and information relevant to NMSU employees, and everyone is welcome to attend these meetings.  If you don’t have time to attend, you can always participate via Webcast, or can view recordings of past meetings.  Just go to empcouncil.nmsu.edu and check it out!

Aggie Insider

Another great way to keep up with NMSU events is to visit the Aggie Insider FaceBook page, maintained by Auxiliary Services.  This page has a current listing of a number of events taking place on campus, so it’s definitely worth visiting from time to time.  Just go to facebook.com/pg/NMSUi/events.

The EXCITE Program is in full swing! Do you know a fellow A&F coworker who goes “above and beyond” in fulfilling their daily job responsibilities?  Please take a moment and recognize them by filling out and submitting an EXCITE nomination form.  It’s easy!  Just go to EXCITE Program and complete and send the form online.  All EXCITE awardees receive a custom EXCITE button and certificate, and may be entered into the pool of candidates considered for the annual James McDonough award, which includes a cash award of $250.00!  Check out the Program!
