  1. I really wish I could attend and participate. I enjoyed last year’s meeting, and learned a lot. It continues to influence my teaching, and more importantly, how I think about and enact my role in union leadership at my university as we respond to the financial crisis in our state.

    In fact, that’s what I wanted to offer a presentation/participate in discussions about: faculty and staff responses to administrative panic about budget cuts. We’re facing somewhere between 15% and 22% cuts, once the state leg finishes the budget, and we’re in a tailspin with little decision making or real leadership.

    Out-of-state travel has been severely curtailed at my uni, and I’ve had some health issues that make spring travel personally difficult for me, so I won’t be joining you in Minneapolis, but I’ll be eagerly watching my email and the conference websites to see what you all do this year.
