SUBJECT:      Political Action Workshop

Please plan to attend a workshop for Chapter Political/Legislative
Chairs, the statewide Political Action and Legislative Committee and
campus activists in connection with the Fall Delegate Assembly:

                    When:   Saturday, October 20, 2001
                    Time:   9:00am - 12 noon
                    Where:  Los Angeles

As we begin another political season, it is important that chapter
chairs have information and tools to carry out the political program
on the campuses.  Here is a tentative agenda:

--  What was accomplished in the field last year and its significance
--  The coming political season and timelines
--  Who is running for the Legislature/key districts of interest
--  Candidate endorsements and how they happen on campuses
--  Volunteering for political campaigns

We are mindful that everyone is being asked to do so much this
fall on the campuses with the Teach-Ins and related activities. Of equal
importance is our need to endorse candidates who are supportive of faculty
and higher education.  The workshop will provide the nuts and bolts to
do this.

Please let Kim Cheney in the GRO know whether you will be able to attend:
kimc@calfac.org, 916-441-4848.  Also forward any agenda items you might
have to her. CFA will cover expenses for overnight accomodations.

Thank you for all the work you are doing.
