MASA Annual Meeting and Luncheon
11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
The Pyle Center
Cost for members: $5
Cost for non-members: $13.50
MASA will pay for lunch for any new MASA member joining by payroll deduction, so please invite a friend!
New members should complete the MASA membership form and forward it through campus mail. For new members, the first year of dues is covered so payroll deduction for new members will not occur until October 2009.
We are excited to have Rick Pifer of the Wisconsin Historical Society as our guest speaker.
This promises to be a very informative event with delicious food! Lunch choices are:
- Bali Chicken with a Indonesian Peanut Sauce (a skinless chicken breast marinated in soy sauce, lime, garlic, ginger and topped with a flavorful peanut sauce)
- Vegetarian quiche (a flaky-crusted pie filled with a unique blend of sour cream, cheese, and zucchini covered with seasoned bread crumbs and baked to a golden brown)
Please register online by Friday, April 25, 2008.

MASA Hidden Treasures Tour: The Geology Museum
11:45 – 1:00 p.m.
Weeks Hall, 1215 W. Dayton Street
Please join us for a tour of UW-Madison’s spectacular Geology Museum, where you you can touch rocks from a time when there were volcanoes in Wisconsin; see corals, jellyfish and other sea creatures that used to live and swim where we now walk; and stand under the tusks of a mastodon while imagining yourself in the Ice Age. Displays also include rocks and minerals that glow, a model of a Wisconsin cave, dinosaurs, and meteorites.
A $1 donation to support the museum is requested.

Campus Child-Care Centers Give Parents Peace of Mind
By Jenny Price, Wisconsin Week
Ten years ago, professors, research assistants and students had no options for infant care on campus to help them stay on the path to tenure, return to the lab or continue their studies after having a baby.
