Committee Reports


If you've submitted reimbursement forms recently, well, they've been turned into SAFO. Yaaay.

When submitting reimbursement reports, paper-clipping them is acceptable. Stapling them is marginally acceptable. Gluing them together is not.


Look, shiny new TIF.

New Business

Without the usual content.

So, I hear there's this guy. He wrote a book, or something. Teaches a class or two.

All-around awesome guy - Professor Joe Haldeman!

Professor Haldeman reads from The Accidental Time Machine, to much acclaim.
