August 26th Update

CAMA Update

Merchant Association member, Teri Branam of UT Federal Credit Union, asked to share this parking lot information with Blog followers since UTFCU has offered their parking lot for free public parking on nights and weekends*:

UTFCU parking lot will be closed for re-paving (weather permitting) Friday, August 26, 2011 5:30 pm through Monday, August 29, 2011 at 8am.

* With the exception of home football game weekends.

In other CAMA news, the Merchants have announced new interns for this fall: Walter Weller (Logistics & Statistics with a concentration in Marketing), Mashundra (Sha) Maclin (Communication Studies with a minor in Business Administration), and Raquel De Bastiani (Marketing with a minor in Spanish). We look foward to working with you and thanks to our outgoing interns Ana Richters and Kiah Simmons who did a great job, especially getting the new CAMA website running which you can find here.

The next regularly scheduled CAMA meeting is set for September 7 at 3:00pm at the Goal Post Tavern.
