Save-the-Date message from LA AAUP Conference President on May 2, 2015, state meeting including Commissioner Rallo and AAUP's CBC Chair a Howard Bunsis


Dear Colleagues:

I am addressing all chapters and members of AAUP across the state, encouraging you to attend a meeting on Saturday, May 2 in LSU-Alexandria. The meeting will begin at 10 AM in the Live Oaks Conference room on that campus, continuing after lunch, which will be served.


The two principal speakers will be Higher Education Commissioner Rallo, speaking on “Conversation at the Crossroads:  Where Higher Education Stands while the Legislature Rolls” and Professor Howard Bunsis, the chair of the national AAUP's Collective Bargaining Congress. A professor of accounting, Howard Bunsis will speak on university financial statements and how to read them (sceptically!), with special attention to our own campuses. It promises to be a useful and timely meeting with the current focus on the budget troubles ahead for all of us.


The meeting is organized jointly by our AAUP State Conference and the Association of Louisiana Faculty Senates. There are likely to be other speakers and the meeting should conclude by 3 PM. It will be nice to have a good turnout of AAUP members, this also serving as our annual meeting.

I encourage you to attend, and look forward to seeing you on May 2.


Best wishes,  

Ravi Rau

President, AAUP State Conference, Louisiana
