Register for the NYS AAUP Conference Spring 2017
Register for the 2017 Spring Meeting of the NYS Conference of the AAUP
April 28 & 29 – NYIT Old Westbury Campus
Come Join Us for a Day of “Strategic Organizing and Planning”
The spring meeting of the NYS Conference of the AAUP will be held April 28 & 29 at NYIT - Old Westbury Campus on Long Island. The business meeting for the NYSC AAUP leadership will be on Friday. The Saturday program/training, open to members and colleagues, will be on Strategic Organizing and Planning. Our presenter will be Joshua Guy Lenes, Lead Organizer and Campaign Specialist at AAUP National. Since joining the staff in 2015, Josh has worked with AAUP chapters and state conferences to build membership and increase their capacity for organizing. As the campaign specialist for the AAUP national office, he has extensive experience working with members and leaders to create comprehensive organizing and campaign plans and he specializes in building and deploying sophisticated databases and modern web, and social media campaign tools to support organizing campaigns. Before joining the staff of the AAUP, he worked as an organizer with faculty at the University of Central Florida, and he also worked with K–12 teachers in the Florida Education Association. He has a broad range of experience organizing with faculty, graduate students, and public school teachers in challenging “Right-to-Work” contexts, and believes in the power of building strong, democratic, internal structures to drive organizing and membership. This program should be of tremendous benefit to AAUP Advocacy and CBC Chapters and our colleagues at colleges and universities who are interested in starting an AAUP Chapter.
