LEWISTON – The Bates Office Professionals Network celebrated its four-year anniversary on Jan. 31 at the annual breakfast, hosting as keynote speaker Judith Magyar Isaacson, Bates ’65, and Bates College dean from 1969-1977.

Isaacson is an Auburn resident and author of “Seed of Sarah,” a historically accurate account of her experiences as a Holocaust survivor. Isaacson read sections of her memoirs in Chase Lounge to 40 staff members.

The network goals are to offer a networking system for all office assistants on campus, to provide support for and encourage congeniality among office staff, and to create an atmosphere of pride regarding the skills that office professionals bring to the institution.

Members meet monthly throughout the year for professional development opportunities that keep staff informed and provide them with new ways to enhance the campus community.

The group’s 2007 coordinators are Rachel Jacques, Carmen Purdy, Lorelei Purrington, Bonny Trundy, Doris Vincent and Lucy Ward.
