Please welcome Amber Lawrence, the Library’s new events coordinator. Amber joins us from the History department, where she worked as an events coordinator for five years. Amber officially starts with the Library on February 10th, but will still be covering some History events for the month of February to help with their transition.
Before coming to UC Berkeley, Amber worked as an independent events manager — coordinating events from 10-700 guests (including President Obama) — and as a head server at Chez Panisse.
Many of you already know Amber, as she has been working with us for 20 percent time since mid-October. In her full-time role with the Library, Amber will lead the Library’s efforts to showcase the organization’s value and accomplishments through event activities. Amber can help with everything from reservations to catering to event flow and programming. Amber sits with the communications team in 132 Doe and can be reached at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
