Nominations for New Advisory Council Due in April
March 15, 2012 –A timetable has been set for the first election of officers to a newly established governing body that represents the university's more than 3,000 staff and academic and administrative professionals (AAP).
An executive committee of senior academic and administrative officers approved the creation of a Staff-AAP Advisory Council in December
A separate election committee comprising staff and university leaders will seek nominations during the month of April, and voting will be held online in June.
“The election committee is hoping there already is enthusiasm about the council and the upcoming elections,” says Mary Anne Mahin, vice president and chief human resources officer.
Town Hall meetings have been scheduled to give university community members the opportunity to learn more and ask questions about the new council, the election process and the criteria for seeking a council seat.
Staff and AAPs are invited to attend any of the following town halls:
- March 14, 1:30-2:30 p.m., Bunn ICC Auditorium
- March 16, 10:30-11:30 a.m., Room 1300, Harris Building
- March 23, 1:30-2:30 p.m., New Research Building Auditorium, Medical Center Campus
- March 27, 10:30-11:30 a.m., Room 207, McDonough Hall, Law Center Campus
“These meetings will give employees an opportunity to ask questions directly of the people who served on the task force – employees who made the recommendations for the council possible,” Mahin adds.
