Nominations for open Staff Council positions now being accepted!

Good Afternoon,

Staff Council is looking for engaged staff members to run for multiple Executive Board positions that will be up for reelection for the 2014-2015 academic year.  If you are interested in running or know someone who would be a great addition to Staff Council, please contact one of the members of the Nominating Committee:  myself, Jen Perlee or Jo Corrow

Serving on Staff Council is an excellent way to get involved, meet new people and help represent your fellow Staff members.  All members of the Nominating Committee have served on Staff Council in a variety of roles  for many years and we can attest that it is a really great opportunity.

If you are interested in any of these positions, or have any questions about what the positions entail, please reach out to the nominating committee or any of your Staff Council Representatives.

Please email the nominating committee if you would like to run, know someone who is interested in running or have someone in mind who you think would be a good candidate by April 1st.  Nominations will be gathered by the nominating committee and passed onto Staff Council.  At the May Staff Council meeting, each person who is nominated and would like to run for a position, will be asked to get up and briefly talk about why they are interested in running.
