A Message from President Shawn Parker NEW

Dear Colleagues,
     As announced last week in my update message, there will be a CCRIFA informational meeting held from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. this Friday, June 13 (Friday the 13th, I know!) in Room 1134 on the Knight Campus (behind the Cafeteria).
    Topics will include pending contract negotiations, recent legislative activity, and the outlook for the faculty association in the coming year. This will be a conversational meeting with members of the Faculty Association who have been involved in various faculty association activities this summer.
    I am eager to hear your concerns, respond to questions and, if we haven’t met before, make introductions.
    Many thanks!
Shawn Parker
CCRIFA President
