The staff trustee position on the Board of Trustees, currently held by Sybil Conrad, is up for re-election at the May 2020 board meeting for a four-year term beginning June 1, 2020.
Applications are being accepted through Monday, March 30th at 11:59pm (extended deadline). Interested staff members should submit a letter of interest along with a resume to the Staff Council Executive Committee at email@example.com. The Staff Council Executive Committee will select three individuals from this pool to be forwarded to the Board for their decision regarding the one position. At its May 2020 meeting the Board will elect the next Staff Trustee, whose four-year term will begin on June 1, 2020.
The staff trustee is a full voting member of the Board and is expected to share the staff perspective with the Board. The staff trustee is expected to attend the three scheduled trustee meetings each year during February, May, and October, as well as participate and march in Commencements and Convocations during May and August.
It is highly recommended that the staff trustee attend staff council meetings and/or meet with its executive board throughout the year.
The staff trustee is expected to sit on two additional committees. Preferences regarding committee participation are considered but there is no guarantee that assignments will match. Committee membership is reassigned each year; assignments may or may not change from year to year.
There may be additional meetings called as necessary, particularly for individual committees. The staff trustee may be asked to attend other events on campus when appropriate.
Please reach out to the Staff Council Executive Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the nomination and application process.
