We had a nice informational meeting at the first Brown Bag discussion last Wednesday. Now it is time to get down to business. If you are interested in joining us at our next Brown Bag Discussion (September 16th from 12:30 – 1:30 (New 9, Language and Literature conference room), it is time to become a member of the national AAUP organization. I’ll request a copy of the updated roster from the national at the end of this workweek so as to have it for our discussion next Wednesday. We plan to begin the meeting with approval of a survey that we will send out to members of our chapter regarding their concerns at this time. We will also begin discussions on the Promotion Process (including annual evaluations and continuing contract).
