UMKC Chapter Announcements

  • Our fall chapter meeting will be on Friday, November 6 at 4:00 pm at Ed Gogol's house. This meeting will be a primarily social gathering. Come to meet colleagues from across UMKC's schools and add to your professional network! The only business item on the agenda is nominating officers for 2-year terms starting in 2016.
    Directions to the Gogol home: the address is 2200 W. 50th TERRACE, the fourth house from Rainbow Blvd. Parking is allowed only on the south side of the street - 2200 is on the north side. (We share our driveway, so please don't block it.)

    Ed's Directions: From the Volker campus, I usually drive west on the south side of the Plaza, as that road turns south and into Ward Parkway, and turn right onto 50th Street, (bear left at the island), turn left onto Stateline, and then immediately right onto 50th Terrace. We're at the far end of the block. For those coming from the Oak St. end of the Volker campus, you can simply drive east on 51st St, straight past Loose Park as the road turns into Rockwell, cross Ward, and you will be on 50th St.

  • Please pay chapter dues for 2016. Send a check for $10 payable to "UMKC AAUP" to Scott Baker in Foreign Languages and Literatures, 215 Scofield Hall.
