James here. Thanks for those of you who came out to the meeting yesterday, I'm continually impressed with the turnout that we see at each meeting. For those of you who could not make it, no worries! Here are a few things that I wanted to briefly touch upon:
This is James Aspery, friendly neighborhood APA President. Many thanks to those who made it out to Thursday's meeting, we have had an incredible turnout for the first two meetings of the year. Also, congratulations to Diana Hasrouni, our new First Year Representative! As a new board member, Diana is excited to bring you all the best possible experience as CSU APA members.
The main point I will continue to stress is that we NEED help from our members to make all our events inclusive & relevant to everyone. From our regularly-scheduled bake sales (see sign-up sheet outside our office UR 114) to our annual Browns Watch Party fundraiser, the difference between a successful event and an unsuccessful one is you!
For the Watch Party, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Tuesday the 22nd if you are interested in assisting with event marketing, donation collections, logistics other areas. Once we have a group of interested members, I am hoping hold our "kickoff" Watch Party planning meeting sometime next week. IMPORTANT: the more that CSU APA members help with events like our Levin Lounge Bake Sales & the Browns Watch Party, the more that reflects upon our funding allocation for the National Conference this April in Seattle.
Also: due to time on Thursday, I was not able to run through the numerous events & happenings on our agenda. Therefore, here are the links to all the events currently residing online:
Talk to you all soon!

Hello, this is James Aspery, your friendly neighborhood President of CSU APA for the 2014-2015 year! As mentioned in my previous message earlier this summer, our Executive Board has prepared a jam-packed Fall semester full of fun events, incredible speakers, delicious baked goods and more! Our first General Meeting of the year is on Thursday, Sept. 4th from 5-6PM in the Bonda Board Room- there will be no speaker this time, but PLENTY of information to go through with you all & free pizza. For those of you who cannot make it, here is a quick run-through of what you need to know:
Hello! This is James Aspery, 2014-2015 President of CSU/APA, and I am excited to share all of the Executive Board's hard work & planning over the course of the upcoming semester! We look forward to continuing the traditional events (such as the always-fun Brown's Watch Party), as well as adding a few new additions to the usual spread. Our mission is to engage our members both inside & outside of Levin, and we plan on accomplishing that through a series of events throughout the Fall semester.
As such, we will discuss these ideas & plans for the Fall semester during the first General Membership meeting of the semester, on Thursday, Sept. 4th from 5-6PM in the Bonda Board Room (UR 254). Here is the full meeting schedule:

Hello all. Wow, this year has flown by. Everyone is wrapping up their semesters and that means the Planning program's Capstone class is just about ready to present the work they've been doing all semester. If you're not familiar, they have been working on the Lake-Link trail, a greenway that will connect the Towpath Trail to the lakefront. Please mark your calendars for May 5th at 4pm to join the class for this presentation. Aside from showing support for your colleagues, it will be a great networking opportunity, as many community stakeholders have been invited to attend as well. The flyer is at the bottom of this post - we look forward to seeing you there!
Another upcoming event at the College, if you have not already heard, is the first "Historic Preservation in America's Legacy Cities" conference! This is a very exciting and important event to be held in our building and will bring speakers and attendees from across the country. The best part? Free for students! That includes May graduates.
