Structure and Meetings

The Nominating Committee (NC) met once monthly throughout the academic year and several times in the summer. Members updated each other on projects; reviewed candidate’s information and made selections; determined future actions needed, such as recruitment efforts and communications with Academic Staff; and delegated tasks to each member for the upcoming month.



1. Procedures

An on-going effort has been made to establish consistent procedures for the selection of candidates.

• To enlist new candidates and to ensure a greater pool of Academic Staff have opportunities to serve on committees, the NC Chair sends out a notice to the Assembly Representatives, who are asked to pass it onto their district members for soliciting volunteers to serve. Nominees are chosen based on skills, fit, and interests. Nominees are also chosen to enhance diversity on all committees. Candidates are asked the following questions.

1. Why are you interested in this particular committee?

2. What strengths would you bring to this committee?

3. Tell us about your work experience and your length of service.

• To ensure that the committees function well, NC members contact the chairs of the committees to solicit information regarding what skills and abilities might be best suited for the opening on the committee. Chairs are also consulted before an incumbent’s name is sent up for re-appointment.

• To encourage wide-spread involvement, nominations of committee members are limited to two consecutive terms, except where the serving member is in the middle of an important project and the chair requests a continuance for that member, the committee is composed of specialists or uniquely qualified individuals (i.e., indefinite appointments), or the member is willing to continue to serve when no candidate has come forth.

2. Recruitment

Pools of Candidates

The NC maintains a list of individuals interested in serving on Academic Staff and Joint Governance Committees from which to draw for nominations.
