The ways in which our members can and do contribute to our vibrant union are many and varied. That's why we look forward to the annual leadership appreciation celebration each year. On May 4, we thanked dozens of FA leaders and activists at The Snapper Inn in Oakdale.

Included at the event were the following:

  • Executive Council Representatives
  • AFT/NYSUT delegates
  • Web manager
  • Community outreach committee
  • Professors on Wheels volunteers
  • Holiday Party volunteers
  • Sabbatical committee
  • Faculty retraining & development committee
  • College personnel committee
  • Election committee
  • Mediation committee

Thank you to all who contribute to the good work of the Faculty Association! We need your efforts now more than ever.
