President's BBQ: Message of appreciation to SFU employees

July 10, 2020

As the weather turns warmer, I regret that we cannot gather as we normally do for the President’s employee appreciation BBQ. Each year, I look forward to the BBQ as an opportunity to connect with you, and to express my appreciation for your service to SFU.

I am particularly disappointed that I cannot again thank you in person for your hard work and commitment to the university before my time as president comes to an end.

Although my video message below is virtual, you can be sure that my gratitude is very real.

We have also found a fun way to keep the spirit of the BBQ alive. If you visit this link, we’ve compiled some of our employees' favourite summer BBQ recipes.

Whatever your plans this summer, I hope you are able to take a well-deserved break.

Be kind, stay safe … until we meet again.
