Dear NFM Chicago Colleagues,
It was very good to meet you last Saturday evening at our first historic meet and greet. The NFM new membership form can be found here:
Pass the NFM new membership form on to others. We are mobilizing for growth and strong activism in Chicago. Indeed, many of us, the new faculty majority are working under precarious circumstances. There are vast issues in front of us in this city and state. Organizing a cross section of educators who are willing to stand and fight for equity in the workplace is what the phalanx of contingent faculty need in the Chicagoland area.
Chicago is a diverse city. We want to diversify our meeting locations in order to keep reaching out to multiple faculty and supporters.
