New Staff Onboarding December 2019

Dec. 3 & 4, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Henry Center, 3535 Forest Road, Lansing, MI 48910

We look forward to meeting with you for New Staff Onboarding (NSO). We begin with a continental breakfast on Day One at 8:30 a.m. and conclude on Day Two by 4:30 p.m. Complete details will be released in mid-November.

NSO is an opportunity for you to network and meet colleagues in varying roles across institutes at MSU Extension. You'll learn about the breadth of this organization's activities, what resources exist through MSU Extension and MSU to support your success in your new position.

Please reserve your own lodging with Candlewood Suites Hotel by calling 517-351-8181 or by following this link MSU Extension New Staff Onboarding (December 2019) to book online. There is a block of hotel rooms under the name MAB until Nov. 12, 2019. The room rate is $95 per night, for a Studio Suite, (one bed) and will be direct billed to MSU Extension (no cost to you). You will submit a Travel Expense Report after the training for mileage. If staying overnight, you should stay at the Candlewood Suites Hotel as the meeting will be held there and it will reduce costs of the overall program (on-site parking is included).

Please note that dinner on December 3 will be on your own. We will share the names of several restaurants around East Lansing that groups may wish to coordinate and dine at together. More information will be provided when you arrive and this meal will be reimbursed as part of your travel reimbursement (some restrictions do apply and will be discussed at NSO).


Michigan State University is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested by contacting the event contact two weeks prior to the start of the event. Requests received after this date will be honored whenever possible.
