What does a USAC member do?
The council consists of members elected for a three-year term. About one third of the council members are elected each year. Elections are held in the spring. The first meeting for newly elected members will be in June. This is also the meeting where USAC officers are elected from council members for the next academic year.
Council members have the opportunity to run for an officer position. The duties of the officers are outlined in the charter. The Chair will attend additional meetings and retreats.
Council members are expected to attend most of the monthly meetings held during the academic year. These meetings are generally an hour and are held between 8:30 and 5 on the main campus. Council members are also encouraged to attend special events such as the staff open forums and Staff Development Day.
Council members may be asked to serve on committees or ad-hoc groups. Information on the committees is available on the committee page and in the charter.
Council members should communicate unclassified employee concerns to the council.
