Last night I sent to all UPI members an a-mail about the upcoming bus trip to Springfield on February 17. Our students have organized two buses to make the trip and UPI is providing one for UPI members. I think it important that we have a presence in Springfield and I ask all our members who could possibly make the trip to do so. I realize that many of us have other commitments, but I think in this instance, if you can exercise discretion in rearranging schedules (personal and professional), making the trip downstate would be an excellent use of your time. Please let me know as soon as possible if you're willing to take a road trip with us.
