Good Morning All,

Thanks to those of you who were able to attend the organization's February 4th meeting.

Just a couple of reminders...

- The Association of Black Faculty, Administrators & Staff (ABFAS) will hold its first Happy Hour Meet-n-Greet for the Spring 2009 semester today Friday, February 6th from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at Brion's Grille in the University Mall, 10621 Braddock Rd (phone: 703 352-7272). Feel free to invite Mason colleagues who may wish to join us for some casual fellowship at the end of the work day. 

- All members are encouraged to please submit your questions or potential topics of discussion for Mason's new Chief Diversity Officer, Corey Jackson's presentation by Friday, February 13th.  The Executive Committee will meet to review your submissions and forward them to Mr. Jackson.  He will be speaking with us at our next organizational meeting on Wednesday, March 4th at 12:00 PM in the Johnson Center's Robeson Room.  The event is open to all members of the Mason community, so spread the word to your colleagues.
