Become a Member of APSAC

Composition of the Committee

APSAC comprises no more than 30 voting administrative and professional staff representing all segments of the campus community, including the regional campuses. Appointments to APSAC are, generally, for a three-year term beginning June 1. A normal term shall begin at the June meeting, unless other circumstances arise, such as the resignation of a representative. There shall be a minimum 12-month waiting period before any member who has served a full term can be eligible for reappointment to the committee.

Recruitment and Selection of New Members

The Membership and Staff Relations (herein referred to as MSR) Subcommittee is charged with the responsibility of recruiting, interviewing and selecting all new APSAC members except regional campus representatives. Regional campus A/P staff advisory groups are charged with selecting a primary representative and an optional secondary representative. APSAC shall identify, orient and mentor new and existing APSAC members to further its mission.

APSAC Membership Drive

MSR accepts applications for new members each December and conducts interviews early in the spring during the APSAC recruitment period. Those who are interested in applying must have their supervisor's approval. Applicants must fill out a brief questionnaire and will be interviewed by up to three current APSAC members. New members will be notified of their acceptance to APSAC no later than May 1, and their terms officially will begin in June.

Member Responsibilities

  • Members are expected to disseminate information of use and interest to administrative/professional staff that has been gathered at the meetings. The representatives of each district shall select the most appropriate and effective means of communication. The distributed information should protect any confidences.
  • Attendance at meetings is expected. Members are expected to stay until adjournment unless prior arrangements are made. Members have the responsibility of arranging with their supervisors and/or department heads for attendance at meetings in accordance with HR Policy V.B.2 and subsequent updates.
  • New members are expected to attend the May meeting (the meeting prior to the beginning of the APSAC year).
