To The Daily Sun,
"I just want to thank everyone who made this day necessary," sometimes quipped Yogi Berra.
Now we can bring that mixed-message of gratitude to an upcoming, Oct. 18, gathering of adjunct professors from the New England campuses. RSVP should be at: GreenChairPictures.com/NH-adjunct or http://bit.ly/NECUReg. Registration at the Concord, NH, Holiday Inn opens at 8:30. Attendance is free, but we need a count for coffee-break order. This Un-Conference 2015 — "Connections" runs from 9 - 3:00.
An un-conference lets the participants propose the topics that day, meet fellow faculty, strategize for the future, and at this one — see the documentary "Con Job. Please put this on your calendar for Saturday the 18th of October, if you are, yes, grateful for your teaching opportunity but, yes, questioning what you've done, taking such a low-paying job. Bring someone with you, someone sharing the situation that more and more faculty do, as campus administrations latch onto adjuncts and low salary as a costs-reduction measure.
