To the BFA membership:
We are pleased to inform you that the proposed amendments to our Bylaws have been approved and can be found HERE.
The members of the Executive Board have appointed the new officers from within their ranks, in accordance with the BFA bylaws. In 2013-2014, Colleen Lye and James Vernon will serve as Co-chairs, and Leslie Salzinger as Secretary. Christine Rosen will continue as Vice Chair of the Association. We thank outgoing Chair Louise Fortmann for her service to the Association.
The news from the state legislature during the past months is disheartening. Our efforts to educate legislators about what to realistically expect from online learning tools continues. We maintain that a small increment on the income tax — $48.00 for the median return –would fully fund California’s three public higher education systems. For details of the $48.00 calculation and how the tax would vary across income levels, see:
We again encourage you to invite other faculty members to participate in our discussion and work towards the rebuilding of our University system. The membership form is on the JOIN page of our website. Simply send us your information online, or print out the form and mail it to the address listed on the form.
Have a nice summer!
The BFA Board of Directors
