In the past, CFA had a number of active volunteer committees. The work of these committees has shifted to members of the Executive Committee, but CFA is always interested in fostering additional venues for the participation of our members. If you are a CFA member (or future member) interested in reviving one of the committees described below, reach out to CFA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Executive Committee (active)
The Executive Committee consists of the president, vice president, treasurer, and campus labor coalition delegate (all of whom are elected by members), as well as chairs of the other committees and members at large. All officer positions can be held by two members as co-officers. The Executive Committee meets monthly to guide and oversee CFA’s activities. These meetings are open to all members.
Campus Labor Coalition Delegate (active)
The Campus Labor Coalition consists of workers from around campus and meets regularly to discuss labor conditions at the university. At least one CFA member attends these meetings to represent faculty views and to listen and respond to the needs of other campus workers.
The Communications Committee represents CFA’s message to our members, the UIUC campus, and the public. The Communications Committee also responds to media inquiries and crafts public statements and press releases.
The Membership Committee works to build and sustain CFA’s membership through outreach activities to faculty on the UIUC campus.
Faculty Working Conditions Committee
The Faculty Working Conditions Committee conducts research into the on-the-job experience of UIUC faculty, including the processes of evaluation and promotion.
The Budget Committee manages CFA’s finances and advises on how the organization allocates its resources. The Budget Committee also analyzes and reports on the finances and expenditures of the campus.
Equal Opportunity Committee
The Equal Opportunity Committee reports to the membership on the progress toward equity for historical minorities on campus (race, gender, sexual orientation, among others).
CFA Senate Caucus
The Senate Caucus is a group of CFA members who are also representatives in the UIUC Academic Senate. We meet regularly to reflect on Senate business and to make sure that faculty voices are clearly heard.
