Happy End-of-the-Year Everyone,
Thanks to those of you who were able to make it to the AAUP closing meeting on Tuesday. For those of you who were unable to attend, I wanted to give a quick AAUP Executive Committee election update. Here are the final results:
AAUP executive committee for 2014-2015
President – Harry Zarin (G)
Treasurer – Bill Talbot (R)
Secretary – Erica Hepworth (TP)
Vice President for Takoma Park/Silver Spring – Robin Flanary
Vice President for Rockville – Michael Gurevitz
Vice President for Germantown – Bryant Davis
Grievance Officer – Tim Kirkner (R)
Member At Large – Sharon Piper (G)
Member At Large – Steve Thurston (R)
Past-President – Rick Penn (R)
We want to thank everyone for your support over this past year. We have another exciting year coming up with the full negotiation approaching and we have a terrific group of representatives who are up for the challenge.
On a personal note, I want to thank the executive committee for their tremendous support and encouragement over the past year. I am very proud of the work we accomplished. I want to give special thanks to Rose Sachs, who has been a superb mentor, motivator, resource, and friend. Rose is retiring this year and we will all greatly miss her presence at the college. I will be maintaining my role as department chair, so I will no longer be able to participate within the executive committee. I will miss the work and the camaraderie, but I hope to take the valuable lessons I’ve learned into other important areas of the college.
Have a great summer!
