Greetings Mason & ABFAS Colleagues,

For those of you who work on the Arlington and Prince William campuses that have 
expressed an interest in participating in the Association of Black faculty, 
Administrators & Staff (or know of someone who has), but have been unable to do 
so, the ABFAS Executive Committee encourages you to participate in our monthly 
organizational meeting on *Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 1:15 
PM*.   As part of our ongoing efforts to reach out and bring together Black and 
African heritage faculty, administrators, and staff throughout Mason, our brown 
bag "community lunch" gathering in March will be a *video conference* with 
members from the Fairfax, Arlington, and Prince William campuses participating.  
This initiative is an exciting opportunity for ABFAS to utilize the technology 
services available at Mason and provide colleagues with an opportunity to be a 
part of our community.

For those of you on the Arlington campus we welcome your participation!Please 
contact Larry Hennsey (ext. 3-8250, [log in to unmask]) that you will be 
attending. If you reside on the Prince William campus we invite you and your 
colleagues to join us as well.  Please contact Charvis Campbell (ext. 3-8373, 
[log in to unmask]).  The ABFAS organization is on the move and we want you to be 
a part of our efforts going forward.  We look forward to seeing you at our Black 
History Month event, *"Celebrating the Educators - Sharing the Legacy,"* on 
*Friday, February 18th at 5:30 PM* in the Johnson Center's *George's Restaurant* 
as well as other future ABFAS events.

Have a good day,
