Periodically APA hosts community lunches for neighboring buildings on campus where members can get updates on APA issues. It also provides a chance for members to bring forth topics for discussion. These informational sessions are a means to generate some additional two-way communication over a light lunch so that your union leaders are aware of issues and concerns from out in the individual units.
These lunches are typically hosted by one of the APA Area Representatives, a Board Member or Kandy Slack, the APA Membership Chairperson. These lunch meetings rotate around campus depending on the availability and willingness of someone to host the meeting. If you work in an area of campus that has not hosted a community lunch in a while and you would be willing to help reserve a meeting room, please contact Kandy Slack at email@example.com and she can assist with the logistics.
Have you ever wondered why you may have been invited to one of these events in a building not even near where you work? This could be that your department has your campus work address listed incorrectly in SAP. Go into MSU people search and if the work address and phone number that is listed for you is not correct, you will need to contact your departmental HR representative to have that updated as you cannot edit that yourself.
