As we come to the end of what seems like a very lengthy first semester, I have a few items to bring to your attention.

Faculty Association Social, Friday, December 9
We have reserved Me N Ed’s for a Faculty Association Social this Friday, December 9.
We have reserved the inside eating area from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.
The FA will pay for all the Pizza, Beer, and Wine for all members who attend.
Me N Ed’s is located at 560 E. Betteravia Rd, on the corner of Betteravia and College, near See’s Candy. See you there.

November Paycheck
Your November paycheck should have included your new salary from our new salary schedule.  It also should have included retro pay for September and October. Additionally, you should have received a one-time off schedule payment of 3% of your new salary.

Absences 7.25 versus 4.15
We have received a few questions about how we are charged for our absences. Rather than try to explain it in this update, your Representative Council thought it might be best if I made a short video explaining how and why we are charged for our absences. If you are interested, please watch this short YouTube video.

In Lieu Payout – December 2022
As I stated in my August Update, you will once again have the opportunity to be paid for the In-Lieus you have accumulated. If you want to receive a December payout for your In-Lieus, please follow the directions in the email you will receive this week from Denise Robles. ( If you do not want to receive your payout at this time, there will be one more opportunity in June 2023. If you have questions, please read my August Update.

Finals Schedule
As a reminder, there has been a change to the Finals schedule. This schedule will be used in December 2022 as well as June 2023.

I hope your last few days of the semester go well and I hope you have a great Christmas vacation.
