AAUP Update: FA17 Opening Meeting


I hope all of you have had a restful and productive summer and are ready to start the new academic year in a few weeks.

I wanted to take this time to remind all of you that we will have an opportunity to meet as a full-time faculty right after the opening meeting on Monday August 21.  This is a very important meeting and one that will allow all of us to exchange our thoughts and ideas regarding the Chapter’s activities for the coming year and the recent memos that we all received regarding a planned increase in our parking fee and negotiations.  I strongly encourage all of you to attend this meeting so that the members of the Executive Committee can share our thoughts and ideas about the future of our contract.

Additionally, coming to the meeting will give you another opportunity to bring a donation for the Rockville Food Pantry.  We starting doing a food drive on each campus last year and this has been a very successful activity for the Chapter which provides a direct benefit to our needy students.  Last spring’s food drive filled the pantry in Germantown.  This fall’s food drive will help fill the pantry in Rockville and our January food drive will benefit the food pantry in Takoma Park/Silver Spring.  Please be generous.

I look forward to seeing all of you at the opening meeting.

On behalf of the Chapter,

Harry Z.
