Good Afternoon All,

My thanks to everyone who attended our Black History Month event /Celebrating 
the Educators - Sharing the Legacy/.  I hope you enjoyed the evening and will 
continue to support our activities in the months ahead.  Now it's time for March 
Madness, so let's go Mason Patriots!

Just a reminder...

The Association of Black Faculty, Administrators & Staff (ABFAS) will hold its 
monthly brown bag community lunch on Wednesday, March 2nd from 12:00 PM to 1:30 
PM.   This month's organizational meeting will be a*video conference* with 
colleagues from the Arlington, Fairfax, and Prince William campuses 
participating.   Please see the attached agenda of items for discussion.  For 
those of you on the Arlington campus - please go to Founders Hall, Room B119 
(seats 20).  Larry Hennsey of Technology Support (ext. 3-8250) is the conference 
liaison there.  If you'll be attending in Prince William, please go to Bull Run 
Hall, Room 254 Conf (Seats 16).  Charvis Campbell, University Life (ext. 3-8373) 
is coordinating attendees there.  For colleagues here on the Fairfax campus 
we'll meet in the Engineering Building, Room1605 (seats 8, but we'll accommodate 
as needed).  This is a great opportunity to bring a portion of Mason's Black & 
African Heritage administrators, faculty and staff through the use of 
technology.  Our intent is two hold one video meeting with the three campuses 
during the Spring and Fall semesters going forward.  We look forward to seeing 
you on screen!

Also, ABFAS will hold its Happy Hour Meet-n-Greet on Friday, March 4th from 5:30 
PM to 8:00 PM at our new location - Icons Sports Lounge & Grille on 10418 Main 
Street in Fairfax (phone: 703 865-6101, http://fairfaxicons.com/index.php).  
Feel free to invite Mason colleagues who may wish to join us for a casual 
get-together at the end of the work week as the NCAA basketball tournament 
season gets underway.
