ANNOUNCEMENTS
Move Message:
If the contents of your office are clearly labeled, as described in the LARCP Move Memo, here , Richard will schedule his crew to move/surplus/discard as appropriate. If you need furniture or other items moved out of your way now so that your office mate can move in or you can maneuver, contact Jody and you will be scheduled (the crew is available now). Richard asks that we have one point of contact so that requests don't get lost. Let Stephanie know if you have questions or concerns.
