A Message from President Tony Lazarowicz

As we approach the cold months of winter, I hope you will find ways to stay involved and venture out to meetings, professional development and networking opportunities. I always enjoy the opportunity to see colleagues at these events and I’m thankful to all of you who have made time to join us so far this year.

As we continue through the year, we are still looking for a few people to step into some roles. Currently the following leadership roles are available:
- Bylaws Chair – reviews the Bylaws and suggests appropriate changes. Helps provide context when there are questions that relate to bylaw issues.
- Programs Chair – Help with programming monthly general membership meetings (includes organizing speakers and securing locations)
- Representative for UAAD on the Parking Appeals Committee – This committee hears all parking and traffic violation appeals, regardless of the alleged violator's status or relationship to the University.

Thanks again for your participation in UAAD and have a great rest of the week!
