Quick News #1

Hello Professors who teach Part-Time!

1.1 - Starting now, the APTPUO will be sending you a frequent “QUICK NEWS” email.

It will keep you up-to-date on breaking issues; highlights of Board meeting discussions; details about our Collective Agreement; invitations to events and meetings; and more.

Too busy to read another email? That’s okay -- just skip it, but please don’t unsubscribe because your Association needs a way to reach you if an urgent situation arises.

To make it easy to “catch up,” each Quick News will also contain the announcements from previous weeks, so you only need to read the latest email to know what has been happening all along!
