Dear Faculty Club Colleagues,
Now is the time to renew your Club membership for the 2010-2011 academic year, if you haven’t done so already. I’m pleased to tell you that our events this year will feature a very special reception and wine tasting, for Club members only, with Chancellor Bantz at Cedar Crest on September 21, 5:30-7:00. Members in good standing will receive invitations in early September, so you’ll want to be sure to renew soon and then watch for the invitation.
We have a super line-up of RaTTs and SALTs planned for this year; please check the schedule at facultyclub.iupui.edu for details and to link to the online registration site. The RaTT series kicks off on September 2 when Thomas Davis of the Department of Religious Studies talks about his new volume, John Calvin’s American Legacy. SALT begins on September 29 with Eric R. Dannenmeier of the School of Law, whose talk is titled “All Too Quiet on the Midwestern Front: Are We Too Entrenched to See Energy Security as National Security?” I hope you’ll be able to join us for both of these thought-provoking series of lunchtime lecture/discussions. The charge this year will be $10/person (rather than the $12,90 charged in past years), which includes the normal lunch charge of $8.45, tax, and gratuity.
To renew, go to the Faculty Club web site at facultyclub.iupui.edu, and click on the “membership” link and then on the application form. Annual dues are the same as last year, $75 for continuing members. New members pay $40 and receive a free lunch with the membership fee, so I hope you’ll also encourage your colleagues, especially those new to IUPUI, to join. And remember that the Club is open to all IUPUI staff, as well as faculty members. The always excellent buffet lunch remains a bargain at $8.45!
I encourage you to renew right away and I look forward to seeing you often at the Club!
