A message from your UWFA President, Christine Newcomb

Greeting, UWFA Members,

What a year this has been! I hope that you are doing well.
You may all have heard that the UW Club is closed for good, and we can no longer hold the Lunch Lectures and Scholarship Awards Dinners at the UW Club.  (The UWFA’s silver is stored safely for future events.)
Of course, the UWFA is an organization independent of the UW Club, and its events will continue in the future at another location. We are searching for venues that can accommodate the needs of the UWFA events.

The UW Faculty Auxiliary Board of Directors has made two important decisions related to the COVID-19 regulations that affect the UWFA organization’s activities.
1. All Lectures for 2020/2021 will be offered by Zoom by members of the UWFA.
Those lectures will be recorded for your convenience, and can be either watched

by Zoom or later online.

  1. We will plan and adjust the Fall Reception according to the rules and regulations that are in place during the COVID-19 situation.

We will exercise extreme caution in reintroducing any UWFA events to keep all members safe.  You will get more       information about this later.

We are encouraging you to meet with your UWFA interest groups virtually and hope you can stay in touch with the members during this unprecedented time.

We kindly ask you to please pay your UWFA dues ( preferably by check), and please make donations for the Scholarship funds on the UWFA website. Your generous contributions will be appreciated and needed more than ever.

I am looking forward to meeting you in person or by Zoom and wish you and your families a safe and restful summer.  And, please look out for more information about the status of any UWFA events in 2020.

Best wishes and kind regards,

Christine Newcomb UWFA president.
