Plan to Attend the OCAAUP Annual Meeting – CBC Midwest Regional Meeting!

We are pleased to announce that the 2014 Ohio Conference AAUP Annual Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Collective Bargaining Congress (CBC) Midwest Regional Meeting, Friday, April 11 through Saturday, April 12 at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel.  

As in years previous, the Annual Meeting will begin with a reception and dinner on Fridayevening, and we will have a short business meeting on Saturday morning. Following the Conference’s business meeting, the CBC portion of the weekend will begin, which will include a short business meeting followed by a series of workshops. There will be workshops of benefit to both collective bargaining and advocacy members.  

Please note that during the business portion of the Conference meeting, there will be a vote to dissolve the Conference’s 501(c)(3) tax entity. As we have reported in previous communications, the Conference initiated a new 501(c)(6) entity so that we are not limited in the advocacy work we engage in on behalf of our members.  An online registration has been set-up by National AAUP, which you can access by clicking here. Registration is only $25.  A block of guest rooms has been reserved for that Friday and Saturday night at a special rate of $115/night. Reservations must be made by Friday, March 14 in order to receive the reduced rate. While you may still be able to reserve a room after March 14, it will be at the regular hotel rate, which is significantly higher.
