Institutional Advancement will have one divisional representative who will be elected in even years. Marketing and Communications will have one divisional representative who will be elected in odd years. Election Calendar

Divisional Elections

In the 2017 elections, Academic Affairs, Business Affairs, Marketing and Communication, and Student Affairs will vote for one divisional representative. Nominations will be accepted starting on February 6, 2017.  Divisional representatives must work in the division they will represent. They will be elected only by members of the staff who work in that particular division. (Here is a list of campus divisions and the departments in each.)

At-Large and Temporary Elections

Nominations and Elections for the three open at-large representatives and the temporary employee representative for 2017 will start in March 2017.  To ensure a diversity of experiences on SAC, at least two of the elected at-large representatives will be from pay bands 1 - 4. Here is a list of state position titles in pay bands 1 - 4.

Qualifications

Full-time, non-instructional staff members, who may also serve as adjunct instructors, and who occupy numbered state lines, may self-nominate for the divisional and/or at-large elections. Full-time temporary staff members may self-nominate for the temporary employee representative. Third-party nominations will not be accepted, so if you feel a coworker deserves to be nominated, please persuade him or her to self-nominate. Employees with titles that use the words "president" or "provost" are not eligible to serve on SAC, but may vote in the divisional and at-large elections.

Nominations

Nominations for divisional, at-large, and temporary employee elections will begin on February 6, 2017 for the 2017 elections.
