  • First, the Program Chair Adam Banks, Conference Chair Howard Tinberg, and Exemplar Award winners Cynthia Selfe and Gail Hawisher all mentioned the needs of adjuncts in their remarks at the opening ceremony.
  • The Committee on Part-Time, Adjunct, or Contingent Labor meets every year in a closed session.
