1. Quartet slated to reveal secrets of great ensemble singing - March 7

Tuesday, March 7
11:00am - 12:00pm
CCSF Ocean Campus, A-133

A vocal quartet will offer a program at the CCSF Ocean campus on Tuesday, March 7, 11:00am - 12:00pm in A-133 (Creative Arts building). This lively and dramatic quartet of singers from the Philharmonia Chorale—consisting of soprano, alto, tenor and baritone—will perform a variety of popular early repertoire from the Baroque period, demonstrating what it takes to deliver ensemble singing at its best. The Chorale, a professional vocal ensemble, collaborates regularly with the celebrated Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, based in San Francisco. The quartet will be supported by Chorale director/harpsichordist Bruce Lamott and a continuo cello. All music lovers are welcome to attend this special free program, whether you are a singer or not. (Do share this information with your students.)

3. Submit Nominations for Executive Council of the CCSF Academic Senate

The nomination period is now open for the Executive Council of the CCSF Academic Senate.  The Executive Council is the top decision-making body representing faculty at CCSF and plays a vital role in negotiating academic policies, curriculum policies, etc.

Please consider running for the Executive Council!  In the past two election cycles, we have had fewer candidates than open seats.  Membership is open to all faculty, both instructional and non-instructional (library, counseling, etc.).  Both full-time and part-time faculty are welcome.  The Executive Council meets on Wednesday afternoons from 2:30 to 5:30.

To run for Executive Council, you need to be nominated by three other faculty members.  Fill out the Petition for Nomination, have it signed by the three nominating faculty members, and return it to the Academic Senate Office, Conlan Hall room E-202 (Ocean campus mailbox E202).  We also strongly encourage each candidate to submit a candidate statement, which can be up to 200 words (longer statements will be truncated).  Candidate statements must be submitted electronically as MS Word files and should be emailed to senelect@ccsf.edu. Nominations are due on FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2017.

Election information and nomination forms are available on the Academic Senate website or by going to the links below (cut and paste them into your browser if they do not show up as hyperlinks).  Questions may be directed to individual election commissioners or emailed to senelect@ccsf.edu.
