CGE will be hosting the bi-annual Alliance of Graduate Employee Locals conference this October. Graduate employee activists from school all over the nation will be in Corvallis October 27-29.
This is a great opportunity for CGE to learn about the broader graduate union movement. There will be panels on graduate issues and social events including a barn party and the return of the Civil War Brew-off. We encourage everyone to come for as much of the conference as they can.

Also since we are hosting other underpaid graduate students, we are looking for a few volunteers to offer up their couches (or air mattresses, extra beds, etc.) for our guests to crash. If you are interested in providing space, please let us know here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&formkey=dHdZN2hVaG45MlRaYzFueVh5ZDB4WVE6MQ#gid=0
