Orientation to American Baptist Life Conference
---------------------------------------
I've received notice from the ABC that their Orientation to American
Baptist Life will be held again this year at Green Lake, WI. The dates
are October 19-23, 2006. This conference is designed to assist
seminarians in developing a better understanding of American Baptist
identity, mission, and future as people of God. All expenses to the
conference are paid by the ABC. If you are interested in attending this
conference next fall, please let me know.

Posters for Stuart Lecture Series

The Institutional Advancement Office has a supply of very attractive
posters advertising the Stuart Lecture Series. You are invited to stop
by Diane Ruark's office (Dabney 22) during business hours and pick up
one (or more) to hang up at your church or other location where you
think it might be seen by interested people.

Thank you for helping to get the word out about this excellent lecture

Student Association - Check Requests
--------------------------------------
Just a few quick reminders from the SA Leadership team regarding check
requests (since the leadership has changed in a few organizations):

1) All check requests must be submitted to the SA Treasurer (Jeff
Lukens). You can either place these in the SA Campus Mailbox (#3) OR
underneath the door of the SA office in Sturtavent. (For your safety,
do not hand pieces of paper to the SA President, she will more than
likely loose them or forget to give them to Jeff).

2) We do not pay speaker fees or honorariums to full-time faculty or
any student. This was discussed during several last semester.

3) If a recognized fellowship is conducting a Wed chapel this semester
please contact either Jeff Lukens or Lella Baker ASAP.

4) Student Fellowship groups may conduct fundraisers and have the money
rolled over to the next fiscal year for the fellowship's use.
fellowships last one!): Fellowship groups are responsible for
completeing their completingt forms. The SA Exec members will not do so
on a fellowships behalf. If you have any questions regarding which form
or how to fill out one of the requests, please e-mail
saexec@yahoogroups.com. Check request forms are found on
Blackboard.

Please let us know if you have any questions!
Thanks,
Lella
