We Are Western THANK YOU!!

As the semester wraps up, the Educational Foundation wants to reach out to our family and say THANK YOU for your participation in the 2013 We Are Western Employee Giving Campaign.

On Thursday and Friday, we'll deliver our version of your mama's homebaked COOKIES (no, we didn't bake them) to say thank you and provide a pick-me-up for the end of exam week. Congratulations on all your hard work this year.

If we miss you, we'll leave the cookie trays in the division and administrative offices around campus, so make sure to stop by and get a treat, on us.

We Are Western and we are family!!

DOA Travel reimbursements to VWCC employees

Effective May 13, 2013, VWCC employees travel reimbursement payments will be deposited into the same account that is set up for their payroll. DOA (Dept of Accounts) in Richmond will now deposit all monies to employees into the account that established for payroll. If VWCC employees currently have travel reimbursements going into a different account, this will be changed effective May 13, 2013.

If you would like to receive an email notification when your reimbursement for travel is deposited, you can sign up for REDI Virginia which will allow employees to designate an email address to receive notifications of upcoming deposits to their bank accounts.
