UTMB Employee Advisory Council Seeks Nominations for Upcoming Election

Interested in Representing Your Co-workers?

The UTMB Employee Advisory Council (EAC) exists to foster bi-directional communication and dialog for all Classified staff, Administrative & Professional (A&P) positions, and Non-Teaching staff, excluding residents. 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, A&P positions, and Non-Teaching staff, excluding residents. For the purposes of representation on the council, the university is grouped in four large segments: Academic Enterprise, Correctional Managed Care, Hospitals and Clinics, and Institutional Support.

The EAC is looking for 4 candidates to replace members who have completed their commitment to the council. Our thanks go to the following members who have completed their commitment: Neal Cooper, Jacqueline Pope, Pinkee Patel and Kelley Prevou.

Nominations will be accepted from Oct. 5 – 23, with elections starting Nov. 2, and concluding Nov. 20.
