Employee Activities Committee
The Employee Activities Committee (EAC) plans activities for Authority employees to increase employee morale. They encourage employee participation, recognize, and celebrate the employees, show support and provide an opportunity for charitable donations in addition to providing team building events to promote collaborative relationships. Last year, the EAC raised $8,435.00 for local charitable organizations by holding Blue Jean days, where staff can donate $5 on the date designated to wear blue jeans and/or sneakers to work. The EAC plans fun activities like Trivia, Chili Cook-Off, Minute-to-Win-it games, etc. They also plan the annual holiday luncheon and annual summer family picnic, and provide food for all-staff meetings. They additionally help to boost morale by holding various events such as pizza parties, ice cream days, represent your team day (by wearing a jersey or t-shirt with their favorite football, Nascar, baseball, basketball team), etc. This is in addition to themed morale boosters such as providing chips on National Chip Day, and sticky buns on National Sticky Bun day.
