CFA Fall General Meeting Recap

Hi CFA Members and Friends,

We had 25 people come out for our fall general meeting last Thursday. Thanks to all of you who made it! For all of those who sent regrets — here’s a recap.

Our lively discussion generated two immediate priorities:
1. Joining the Homecoming Parade protest on Friday October 27 at 6:00 pm
2. Support for GEO in their contract negotiations, especially tuition waivers

In terms of our next priority, there are at least two action items.
1. A letter and a campaign in support of our graduate students, their tuition waivers in particular
2. A list of alternate places where classes can be held so that we can respect the picket lines

Please let me know if you’d like to work on either of these projects. We need to get going soon.

We would like to grow the membership, and we’re looking for one or two people willing to chair or co-chair the membership committee. Please let me know if you’d like to serve.

I’ve had two wonderful volunteers to serve on the communications committee. Thank you Harriet and Terri!

Our next executive committee meeting will take place Monday November 6 from 12-1 in the CFA office. Please join us — there’s candy!

See you all soon.

Warmest wishes,
CFA President
