Open Sept. 15-30
It’s UAF Staff Council Representative nomination time! This is your opportunity to decide which UAF employees will appear on the ballots in the representative elections. Representatives bring your concerns and needs to the leadership of UA and UAF. This year we will be electing representatives for the even-numbered Staff Council units and at-large seats 2 and 4. Elections are for two-year terms starting in January 2020.
Please note that during this election cycle, there may be some flux as to which units employees are assigned. These changes may result in some UAF employees changing to a different unit or moving to Statewide. There is also the possibility of the UAF Staff Council joining UAA and UAS to form a UA Staff Council. For the sake of continuity, UAF Staff Council is holding elections per usual and will adapt as necessary in the coming year.
Visit the Staff Council unit finder tool to verify which unit you belong to. Those in even-numbered units are welcome to nominate themselves or a colleague to serve a two-year term representing that unit. You may also nominate a staff member from any unit to an at-large position. Nominations via Google Form will be open from Sept. 15-30, and elections will be held in November.
