The Backups are responsible for replacing the "Jobee" if he/she is
not available (i.e., not in CITA). This will simplify the procedures when leaving
for a trip. If the backup is not present in CITA either, it is the responsibility
of the "Jobee" to find a replacement. Some jobs can be done remotely
(or can wait short periods) and do not require a backup.
- Job Tzar: General complaints may be addressed
to this person but smooth functioning of CITA depends on everyone taking responsibility
of their assigned jobs.
- Finance Tsar: Collecting money from the CITAzens
(please pay promptly!) and reimbursing the NYTimes buyer and the CITAzens
responsible for keeping the coffee, tea, milk and sugar supplies in stock.
Has authority to break kneecaps.
- NYTimes: Buying the NYTimes on weekdays, and
recycling the previous day's paper. Give receipts to Finance Tsar / Candace.
- Coffee Machine Cleanup: The new espresso machine
is great. But it'll remain so only as long as we maintain it. Remember that
it's also very costly to repair/replace. The coffee machine has to be cleaned
everyday, especially in the evening. Also check to see that its working okay.
Last person to use the coffee machine for the day also has the responsibility
to close the lounge door (so that the coffee machine remains in the lounge
for use the next day!)
- Coffee Tsar: coordinating the purchase of coffee
supplies (coffee, milk, etc.), and handling any coffee-machine-related emergencies
- Seminar Tsar: Arranging the seminars: correspondence
with the lecturer, arranging the seminar schedule, booking the seminar room,
install projector/projection screen, introduce seminar speaker (or by the
host). Candace will book Massey if needed.
- Seminar Serf: Preparation and posting of seminar
notices; these need to appear on the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 11-14th floor of McLennan
Lab as well as the DAA.
- Visitor Tsars: Taking care of visitor dinners/lunches
and occassional visits to the Firkin, helping visitors interact with CITAzens.
Also available for any `how to' questions from new postdocs/long term visitors.
- Seminar Cookies: Buy cookies for post-seminar
partying. Keep the reciepts and apply for reimbursement once every month.
- Coffee and Tea supplies: Keeping a non-empty
stock of coffee, tea, sugar and milk. Keep the receipts for reimbursement
once every month.
- Bulletin Board Posting: Post information on
the bulletin boards (and whatever other jobs that Nina/Candace request ...)
- Web assistance: Helping to create and update
CITAzens' web pages, including the seminar webpage. Helping Chris maintain
CITA webpage. Updating CITA webpage on a regular basis.
- Taking care of the Plants: Maintaining the plants
(watering them and occasionally removing dead leaves/twigs/bugs/students etc).
- Social Tsar: Help arrange social events like
picnics, parties, Jamboree, etc.
- Friday Dessert: This is a CITA legacy. Two at
a time, buying (or baking) dessert (usually 2 cakes or equivalents from each
person). They are required to prepare the coffee room by 4pm. This includes
cleaning up and preparing a pot of fresh coffee. After dessert, they are responsible
for cleaning up the leftovers from the centre table. Everyone should wash
their own dishes and cutlery and take them back to their office so we don't
end up with a pile of dishes in the rack (or worse, in the sink).
Note: Other than people in committees, we need
enthusiastic/outgoing/enterprising CITAzens to help Nina and Candace plan and
execute CITA events (like picnic, BBQ, parties, movies etc). Ideas and help
are more than welcome.
