Become a Department Representative

CFA Department Representatives are the eyes and ears of CFA for their campus department.

They are responsible for letting their colleagues know what is happening in CFA with regard to bargaining, faculty rights, the state budget and other issues. 

At the same time, Department Representatives let their chapter leadership know what issues are cropping up in departments. Department Representatives typically meet two times per year.  Occasionally, representatives are invited to report out to the chapter during their Executive Board meetings to ensure the campus-based leadership can assist with dealing with concerns.
