Rather than have the CFA's monthly general meeting in December's busy exam period, the executive team thought an end-of-term social-cum-meeting might be more meaningful. To that end, the December meeting will instead be held on November 29, from 11:40 - 12:50 , in LB 322.
In addition to a few business items, there will be finger food, door prizes, music, and some festive puzzles. Mingling? Mandatory. Plan to come and share a few laughs with your faculty colleagues.
If you are a chair, coordinator, or convenor (3Cs), or a steward, please attend one of these two lunch meetings on Tues, Nov 22, 2016: 3Cs, LB 322, 11:40 - 12:50; stewards LB 321, 11:40 - 12:50.
If you are a chair or coordinator, be sure to register for one of the upcoming training sessions. The sessions are 2.5 hours long and will be led by Capilano's Erin Berry, senior human resources advisor, and Joanne Quirk, CFA's chief steward. Because many issues will also be relevant to stewards and convenors, they too are welcome to attend one of the sessions: Tues, Nov 8, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.; Thurs, Nov 17, 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.; or Wed, Nov 23, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Send RSVPs to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov 4, 2016.
Capilano University's new president, Paul Dangerfield, will attend the CFA's next general meeting, Oct 18, in LB 322, 11:40 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. Please plan to attend — and bring some good questions with you.
Members of the 3Cs Roundtable will meet in LB 322 on Tues, Sept 27, 2016, from 11:40 - 12:50. Stewards will meet next door in LB 321 at the same time. For catering purposes, send your RSVP to email@example.com.
