Nominations sought for upcoming NESC Elections
Nonexempt (hourly) Employees are invited to nominate themselves or colleagues to serve as candidates in the upcoming Nonexempt Staff Council Election.
Thursday, January 17, 2013
12:00 PM - 12:00 PM
Nonexempt (hourly) employees are invited to nominate themselves or colleagues to serve as candidates in the upcoming Nonexempt Staff Council Election. We are looking for energetic individuals from a variety of departments and service areas who are interested in advancing NESC’s mission to build a strong and healthy workplace by fostering communication with the University’s administration, advocating for common interests, focusing on cooperation, and building community within the University. Because NESC serves and advocates for all hourly employees, we encourage people from all departments and campus locations to consider running for election.
NESC members serve two-year terms and generally devote two to five hours per month to Council duties, which include attending monthly meetings, serving on university committees, coordinating social events for nonexempt staff, working on council management projects, representing the Council at UST events, and organizing the annual Nonexempt Staff Appreciation Breakfast.
Because council members provide an important service to the University, NESC activities will be considered part of an employee’s duties, and supervisors will approve NESC-related absences. Those who serve also have the opportunity to learn more about UST while meeting colleagues from throughout the campus community.
