College Convocation

Over the past few months, faculty members have received messages from various College administrators, including Dr. Posey, inviting us to participate in the College Convocation on Tuesday, November 12.  The agenda for the Convocation was distributed to faculty on Oct. 25 via an email message from Jean Manning.

The purpose of Jean’s invitation is to determine what size rooms will be reserved for breakout sessions and what food should be ordered, so please be certain to register for the Convocation by this Friday, November 1st at

Under the terms of the current collective bargaining Agreement, instructional faculty members are required to attend the Convocation, as an “in-service day,” defined as a part of instructional faculty workload.

Instructional faculty members who do not attend the Convocation should report Nov. 12 as a personal leave day, since this is a mandatory day of service at the College.

A separate form is provided for each course eligible for compensation.

Faculty members must complete the remainder of the form and return it to the Division Dean (or designee) by May 15, 2013.
