2020 Organizational Restructuring

On January 1, 2020, the AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress was folded into the AAUP and its former programs became programs of the AAUP.  This change grew out of the shared organizational vision of the AAUP and the AAUP-CBC and streamlined our governance and organizational structure to ensure that we are using our resources to support our chapters and conferences.

In June 2019, both the AAUP annual meeting and the AAUP-CBC regular meeting voted overwhelmingly to proceed with a package of changes that combined the two organizations. The proposed organizational changes required approval of two motions by the AAUP annual meeting and one, dissolving the AAUP-CBC, by the AAUP-CBC regular meeting. 

Organizational changes approved by the AAUP June 2019 annual meeting included the following:

  • Amendments to the AAUP Constitution codifying changes directed by the AAUP Council and the AAUP-CBC Executive Committee in November 2018.
  • A Constitutional Amendment Proviso establishing the transitional leadership structure for the newly combined organization.
  • A recommendation to roll AAUP-CBC dues into AAUP collective bargaining dues, effective January 1, 2020.
