On Moving the Faculty Club: October 6
Dr. Elsa Ramsden, chair of the Faculty Club's Board of Governors, has called a membership meeting Monday, October 6, at 4:30 p.m. to discuss "plans for the future of the Faculty Club in facilities located within the Inn at Penn."
In a message to all members, Dr. Ramsden described summer discussions between an ad hoc committee of the Board and two members of the Business Services Office-Vice President Steven Murray and Associate VP Marie Witt-which resulted in "a set of plans which were reviewed and accepted by that [ad hoc] committee and brought to the Board at a special meeting in mid-August."
The Club's lease of Skinner Hall expires in the year 2009, and the construction of the Inn at Penn is part of the Sansom Common project at 3600 Walnut. Present construction is concentrated on the Penn Book Store, scheduled to open for the fall term in 1998.
The October 6 meetingat the Club is to include a presentation of architectural plans and a Q&A as well as an overview of circumstances that led up to the summer discussions, Dr. Ramsden said. Members are invited to bring interested colleagues, and light refreshments will be served.
