Subject: EX COM NOTICE: ex-com decision

Ex-Com folks:

This is in regards to the Campaign for the Future of Higher Ed’s conference here at UMB, Nov 4-6; and the Labor Resource Center conference on organizing in higher ed, Sept 30, Oct 1 here at UMB.

The 1st conference has no reg’n fee and the MTA has agreed to pick up hotel costs for MTA members (up to $1 K).  The 2nd conference has a $220 reg’n fee.

I would like to do an e-vote on a proposal to subsidize these conferences as follows:

1.Give the 1st conference $1 K.      

2.Subsidize FSU members who wish to attend the 2nd conference $100 up to a total of $1 K.  (I’ll remind faculty they can get some of the rest back through RES funds.)

Would you please email Lorenzo ( ) asap, and tell him whether you support 1 , 2 or both?  I don’t want to wait any longer to get the word out.
