United Academics General Membership Meeting Agenda
November 5, 2014 UO Ford Alumni Center, 5-7pm

    Do I have to be a union member to show up? What about for the free beer?

        Do we have to still be affiliated with the U of O? While of course my interest is broad, if you could phrase your answer as though I were just asking about the beer you might save us both some time
