Dear AFT Guild Members,
On May 1st and 2nd, CFT will be holding its inaugural Part-time Conference in Sacramento!
Under the theme “Organizing for Equity in Higher Education,” this CFT conference will bring together contingent faculty in the community colleges, the University of California, and at private universities to focus on workplace issues, legislative advocacy, and our campaign to secure healthcare for part-time faculty in the community colleges.
The Sunday (May1st) program at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel will feature plenaries and workshops highlighting best practices, challenges, and legislative priorities. On Monday (May 2nd), we will move to The Sutter Club where attendees will meet with legislators to advocate for the $200 million allocated in the state budget for part-time faculty healthcare and other key legislation.
The Guild will reimburse your airfare, one night of lodging at the CFT rate, and up to $75 for any miscellaneous receipted expenses.
The conference is intended not just for part-time faculty, but their supporters as well. You can sign up for the conference and book your hotel room here: https://www.cft.org/pt-conference
Let’s take our local’s energy and advocacy to Sacramento and show them what we can do!
