The AAUP-CBC held its Eastern Regional Meeting in New York City on February 23 and its Western Regional Meeting in Portland, Oregon, on April 6. The events were hosted, respectively, by the Professional Staff Congress of the City University of New York, an affiliate of the AAUP and the American Federation of Teachers, and the Portland State University AAUP chapter.
Regional meetings are designed to give AAUP members from collective bargaining chapters the opportunity to learn about and discuss key issues that face AAUP unions, such as online education, institutional finances, and “right to work” legislation. The meetings also give AAUP members a chance to meet colleagues from nearby institutions. The AAUPCBC thanks its hosts and all of the members who attended for making this year’s Eastern and Western Regional Meetings a success.
