Dear Members of the North Carolina Conference of the American Association of University Professors,
I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
On behalf of Dr. Jim Carmichael, President of the NC AAUP, I cordially invite you to attend our 2016 Conference Meeting at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. Dr Jo Allen, President of Meredith College, will hold a reception for the conference at her campus residence on Friday, October 14 from 5:00 – 6:30 pm. Conference activities formally begin on Saturday, October 15 with registration, coffee, and continental breakfast from 8:00 AM. The program begins at 9:00. Our keynote speaker, Samuel J Dunietz , Research and Policy Analyst at AAUP National, will conduct a workshop on Political Mobilizing for NC Higher Education (A Non-Union State). After lunch, we will have a short business meeting including elections followed by a discussion on how to apply what we have learned into an action plan for NCAAUP.
We hope that you will be able to attend the various facets of the conference and join us in discussion over organizing efforts to promote NC higher education policies. Whether you are a faculty member affiliated with a public or private institution, non-tenure track faculty or teaching graduate student, we invite you to attend and give voice to your interests, ideas, and concerns with the welfare of the professorate.
Attached to this post is an itinerary of the conference with specific times and an RSVP form indicating which parts you will be able to attend. Please return the completed form to Chase Hanes at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 3rd, 2016.
