2020 Spring EOM Celebration Canceled

The EOM Committee has made the unfortunate decision to cancel the 2020 Spring EOM Celebration due to circumstances surrounding local and statewide restrictions on large public gatherings and limitations imposed by the current county shelter in place order. We look forward to celebrating the contributions of our colleagues in Winter 2021.

NOTICE: We will continue to accept and review your nominations of outstanding De Anza College classified professionals for the remainder of the year. Please continue to submit nomination forms today!
