Membership Meeting Thursday, September 22 with UUP Statewide Officers

I just wanted to give you a heads up that we have been asked by UUP Central to have a Union Membership Meeting.  At this point in time UUP Vice President for Academics Jamie Dangler and Membership Development Officer Tom Hoey will be coming up to speak with the chapter. There is a possibility UUP President Fred Kowal may come too but we won’t know that until right before the meeting.

The meeting is set for 12:30 with wooden nickel tokens good for an $8 lunch in the Sundowner available from me at Noon in the Cardinal lounge. 

Thanks, Karen Volkman, PUUP Chapter President
