President's Message

As my first presidency term starts, I wanted to send you a note about a few new things you will be seeing under my presidency.  First, I hope you are enjoying your summer break, you deserve it!  Second, I will be visiting each of your sites, during the lunch times, at least twice during the year and also attend one of your site’s mandatory meetings; to hear AVUTA member concerns, answer questions, and to get to know all of you.  I will be bringing AVUTA swag with me, to give away, so please make sure you ask your site rep when I will be visiting.  Third, I believe the contract is important, but I know it is hard to decipher and some of you just don’t want to or don’t have the time to read.  One of my jobs, is to help you understand it, so I will be doing a tip of the month that explains all or part of a contract article in the terms you will understand and tell you why it affects you, as a member.  Please look out for the first tip, it should be coming out next week. Fourth, we have just redone the AVUTA office (which is located on the district office campus, between Conference Room A and HDPA; AVUTA is marked on the top of the building).  The phone number to the office is 760-946-9393; we also have an extension through AVUSD, both have voicemail and messages will be returned.  We will be doing a Meet and Greet on August 28, 2018, from 4-6, please stop by chat with our Exec Board and Rep Council, eat some yummy snacks, and see the office.  Lastly, I realize you all received the Keenan Safe Schools Training email and it is due before we even come back from summer break. I emailed Colette and she changed the date to September 19, 2018.  Therefore, don’t worry about the training and enjoy your vacation.  I am excited to be your president and can’t wait to work on some of your concerns.
