We are pleased to announce that the GEO is hosting this year’s AGEL (Association of Graduate Employee Locals) Conference here in Champaign-Urbana! It will run from Thursday, October 24 through Saturday, October 26. Members of grad locals from across the country will be getting together to strategize, share experiences, network, and participate in workshops and panel discussions.
We will have about 30 grad employees traveling here from other universities. We are working to find hosts for them in order to keep costs down. If you would be interested in housing a visitor, please contact Brook. This would be an amazing way to help with the conference, and a nice opportunity to meet active union members from other universities.
All GEO members are encouraged to participate in all or part of the conference, including meals and the nighttime social activities.
