I hope that all of you had a very enjoyable holiday season with family and friends. As we begin 2014, let me remind you that this is an election year for the Congress and the Legislature. Government & Community Relations will be engaged in Advocacy efforts and needs your voice and participation. If you have not already done so, please join Bruin Caucus.
During the first quarter of the year, we have several major advocacy events planned. On February 6, 2014, we will be partnering with Cal State Northridge, LA Valley College, Mission College and Pierce College in a joint higher education reception for San Fernando Valley Elected Officials. This event brings together the three segments of higher education to sponsor an opportunity for constituents in the San Fernando Valley to meet with their local, state and federal representatives. Save-the-date and contact Advocacy with questions .
Final thought, while I was still enjoying our win over USC in football and our impressive Sun Bowl victory on New Year’s Eve, we beat USC in men’s basketball on January 5th, 107-73. The New Year is off to a good start.
