Dear Leeward CC Faculty and Staff,

You are cordially invited to attend the Convocation Faculty Senate Breakout session on Wednesday, August 16th.  There will be a slideshow presentation about the Faculty Senate. There will also be in attendance faculty senators, returning and new, for you to meet.

This will also be a chance for you to hear and thank the AY 2016-2017 Faculty Senate Chair, William Albritton, and Vice-Chair, Eiko Kosasa, and Secretary, Wayde Oshiro, who will be present to talk about the issues the Faculty Senate faced during the last academic year while the new incoming Faculty Senate Executive Board will answer any questions you might have about the upcoming year.

If you are interested in running for a seat on the Faculty Senate in the future this is also a good time to learn what we do.

Thanks, and hope to see you there.
