CFA SPONSORS RESOLUTION AT THE CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONVENTION --
March 14-16, Sacramento

A delegation of CFA faculty leaders and staff will be participating in the
California Democratic Party convention the weekend of March 14 - 16 in
Sacramento. CFA will be presenting a resolution to the party that
encourages it to reaffirm its long standing commitment to public Higher
Education and the students, faculty and staff of the CSU. Further, CFA's
resolution calls on the party to encourage the CSU to work collaboratively
with university stakeholders to protect funding for instruction and student
service programs while seeking alternative funding sources to mitigate the
need for student fee increases which could deny educational opportunities
to thousands of students.

We are looking for others to join us in lobbying the resolution at the
convention. If you or someone you know will be attending the convention,
and would like to participate in the effort, please contact the
Governmental Relations Office at (916) 441-4848.
