BYU OPAC announces theme for 2008-2009 year

BYU’s Office Professionals Advisory Committee (OPAC) and Human Resources Services will again host a series of brown bag lectures in the Wilkinson Student Center on the second Thursday of each month from October through February. Attendees should bring their own lunches.

The theme for this year’s events is “Seek ye earnestly the best gifts … And all these gifts come from God, for the benefit of the children of God.” (D&C 46:8, 26) “God does live. He does bless us with gifts… The world can be a better place and God’s work will move forward at a more rapid pace” (Marvin J. Ashton. Ensign, November 1987).

The 17th annual OPAC conference will be held March 11-13 in the Wilkinson Student Center.
