As the year comes to a close it is time for us to be thinking about who will manage the affairs of the Montgomery College Chapter of the AAUP next year. Nominations for the positions of President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Vice President for Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma Park/Silver Spring are now open and are being accepted by Julie Levinson, Counseling TP/SS. Julie has graciously agreed to be our one person Nominations Committee.
The current officers of the Chapter are;
- Harry Zarin, Chapter President
- Michael Gurevitz-Business, Treasurer
- Tito Baca-TP/SS Secretary
- Robin Flanary-Nursing, Vice President TP/SS
- Denise Dewhurst-Psychology, Vice President Germantown
- Steve Thurston-English, Vice President Rockville
If you are interested in running for one of these positions or if you would like to nominate a dues paying full-time faculty member for one of these positions please submit your nominations to Julie by the close of business on Friday, May 13th. Nominations may be made via e-mail to email@example.com or in writing.
We will conduct our on-campus voting at the closing meeting on Tuesday morning May 17th in the second floor lobby of the HT building. Look for the AAUP table when you come into the building’s entrance on the second floor.
I encourage all of you to attend our end of the year Chapter meeting which will take place in Globe Hall right after the Dr. Pollard’s opening meeting. This meeting will give you an opportunity to hear about the activities the Executive Committee has been involved with this semester, our re-negotiated pay raise for next year, the resolution of a multi-person grievance, and much more. While at the meeting you will also have the opportunity to ask questions about a variety of issues that we will be discussing and voice your opinion regarding issues that interest you.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the closing meeting.
