Staff Council is excited to announce that we are assembling ad-hoc committees and renewing standing committees to address the needs and interests of our staff members while supporting the mission of AUM.
Communication and Website Committee
This committee will re-design and keep the Staff Council website up to date. Staff members should be able to go the website to find the Staff Council calendar, meeting minutes, photographs of recent events, list of Unit Reps and officers and contact information, and by-laws, etc. We need to make our site user friendly!
Employee Recognition Program Committee
This committee needs to take a closer look at how Staff Council can recognize staff contributions and service at AUM. This committee will explore how to incorporate our Core Values into the recognition program. This committee administers the Staff Council Scholarship.
Staff Development Committee
This committee will develop Unit Representative training for summer 2014. This committee will identify one or two seminars, workshops, or continuing education opportunities that were requested in the staff survey and that the staff will find interesting.
This committee plans the Staff Council Holiday Luncheon and will re-design the Spring Fling. The Holiday Luncheon is our favorite event and needs many volunteers. The Spring Fling needs to be re-designed and everything from the date, time, and theme are up for consideration in order to make the event accessible for our staff members. This committee is responsible for the AUM Sprit Day, which is complete for this school year.
