New Decade – New Beginnings – New Challenges

As we begin this new decade, we have an exciting new contract, which you can see on the CONTRACT tab.  Many of your questions will be answered there, but as always, reach out to us if you have any questions.  Contact information is on the CONTACT US tab.

We begin this new year with new officers, Karen Florian, Erik Solomon, Lynette Thornburgh and Jessica Hoth.  Please reach out to us if you have any questions or issues.  We are here to help you in any way we can.

As we begin this new year, our Professional Development Committee (created by the new contract) is busy working on defining the various provisions of the professional development requirements as outlined in the contract. This work is to be completed by early summer and we will communicate the results to you then as well as at our fall in-service.

Our major challenge is the COVID19 virus and its impact on the delivery of our classes to our students.  At this time, we can use our creativity and empathy to ensure that our students continue to get the best possible educational experience. We have the ability to look at things from a different point of view, keep a positive can-do attitude and use the ideas and expertise of our peers to make this happen.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or issues, please let us know.

Welcome to a New ERA for Adjuncts

This is a very exciting time for CLC adjuncts.  We have a new 4 year contract that is the best contract we have ever had. It includes benefits that many of us never thought we would see in our careers at CLC.  Go to the CONTRACT tab to see some of those wonderful changes.  The actual 2019 – 2023 contract is posted there for reference purposes.

It is also a time to welcome our new officers:  Karen Florian, Erik Solomon, Lynette Thornburgh, and Jessica Hoth.  These people have stepped forward to lead and to advocate for the adjunct faculty.  Their contact information is on the CONTACT US tab.

But it is also the start of a new era for adjunct faculty at CLC.  For years adjunct faculty were barely a “blip” on the College’s radar. But recently we have seen a change for the better, we are more than a “blip.”    Decisions were made without consulting adjunct faculty and many of us felt underappreciated.  But this is the beginning of a time when adjuncts are well represented on faculty senate, are consulted on major decisions, are considered for directorships of departments and segments of the college, we have a brand new state of the art office space, and much, much more. Thanks to work of CLC-AFO our opinions and views are being sought and weighed in decision making. We teach the vast majority of classes, hold the most load hours,  and provide the vast majority of services in the counseling and library.  We are more than a blip.


Welcome to the CLC Adjunct Faculty Organization (CLC-AFO) webpage.  CLC-AFO is the adjunct faculty union at CLC, started in 2005 and is made up of us, fellow adjunct faculty.  The purpose of the organization is to assist adjunct faculty, to protect adjunct faculty rights and benefits, to negotiate for future benefits, and to promote the unique interests of adjunct faculty at CLC.

The Officers are here to help you and make your teaching experience here at CLC the best that it can be.  Each of the tabs is organized to help you navigate through the webpage easily and find information that you need.   Of course do not hesitate to contact any officer should you have questions and concerns.  Our contact information is under the CONTACT US tab.

We hope your teaching experience at CLC is professionally rich and fulfilling.
