On behalf of Dr. Jim Carmichael, President of the NC AAUP, we extend a cordial invitation to attend the 2016 NC 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. The 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, there will be 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 you will be able to attend the various facets of the conference and join in discussion around organizing efforts to promote positive policies for NC higher education. Whether you are a faculty member affiliated with a public or private institution, a non-tenure track faculty member, or a teaching graduate student, we encourage you to attend and give voice to your interests, ideas, and concerns for the welfare of the professorate.
