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.

Thanks to all current members for your continued support of ABFAS!

Have a good day,


Kevin R. Slaughter
