Call for Nominations for MOFA Committees
The Manitoba Organization of Faculty Associations (MOFA) is seeking membership participation in several new committees as we begin the implementation and design of our Higher Education Works campaign. The committees will be responsible for working with and directing the MOFA campaign director in their work. The committees will operate in a consensus-based decision-making process. Should items before the committee require voting to determine the future direction, the committees shall allocate one vote for each institution participating in the committee.
