Employee Advisory Council seeks nominations for new members

The UTMB Employee Advisory Council (EAC) exists to foster bi-directional communication and dialog for all Classified Staff and Administrative & Professional (A&P) positions. The Council, which is sponsored and endorsed by the Office of the President, works to promote a positive and collaborative work environment that is committed to assessing, prioritizing and communicating employee needs. It also serves as a focus group/advisory panel by providing a feedback loop on broad issues and potential new programs that can impact Classified Staff and A&P positions. For the purposes of representation on the council, the University is grouped in four large segments: the Schools, Correctional Managed Care, Hospitals and Clinics, and University Support Areas.

The EAC is looking for four candidates to replace members who have completed their commitment to the council. Our thanks go to the following members who have completed their commitment: Diana Davison (Institutional Support /CMC), Gerald Cleveland (Institutional Support), Tammy Cupit (Hospital and Clinics) and Vivian Granger (Schools).

Nominations will be accepted from September 19 – October 31 with elections starting November 1 and concluding November 18. To be placed on the ballot as a nominee for the 2012 elections, complete the following steps:

1. Visit the EAC website at http://blog.utmb.edu/EAC and review the EAC guidelines

2. Provide a brief biography that describes your role at UTMB (less than 300 words) and a statement about why you want to serve on the EAC. Include all your contact information (phone numbers, email and your department).

3. Provide an up to date digital photo of yourself to be placed on the site for review from your peers.

4. Supply a statement of support from your supervisor/manager indicating your ability to devote 3-5 hours each month for the three year commitment period to the council. The Academic Enterprise requires Administrator approval as well.

UTMB employees elect new members to the Employee Advisory Council

The election for 2011 members to the Employee Advisory Council has been completed and four new members will take their seats on the council on Jan. 24, 2011. We want to thank all of the nominees for their time and energy along with the record number of employees who voted in this year’s election.

Each year an election is held to replace members who have served their term. The peer elected group serves both classified and administrative and professional employees. Faculty are represented via the Faculty Senate and therefore, not part of this election process.

On behalf of the current EAC, I would like to thank Chuck Machner, Melanie Loving and Craig Peters for their guidance, time and endless energy in establishing the EAC at UTMB and to encourage them to remain active as we move forward.

The newly elected members are listed below along with the entity group they serve. Please join me in welcoming them and let us know how we can represent you better in the coming year.

Respectfully,

Gerald Cleveland
