If you are interested in promoting the greater good for your colleagues, department and the university, and want to get involved with a cross-section of St. Thomas professionals, nominate yourself or someone you know to serve on the Exempt Staff Council.
We are requesting nominations to replace five members of the council. Members serve for two years and are expected to represent the council on a standing committee of the university.
Nomination invitations were sent to exempt staff on Monday, Feb. 23, and nominations must be received by March 11. Nominees will be contacted by members of the current council to confirm their approval to be placed on the ballot.
The election will begin March 23. Exempt staff will receive an email outlining the voting process and an invitation to vote. Newly elected council members will be notified after voting ends, and an announcement of the election results will be published the following week in the Newsroom and posted on the council website.
ESC meets monthly, organizes semi-annual forums and brown bag sessions, and other works on projects in the interest of exempt staff. For more information, read the mission and bylaws or visit the Exempt Staff Council website.
ESC consists of 10 voting members elected for two-year terms. An elected member may serve a maximum of two consecutive terms (four years). A former ESC member may rerun for another single term of office (two years) after being off ESC for at least one term (two years). Council terms shall be arranged so that 50 percent of the members shall be up for election each year.
