APSAC elects vice chair, 4 emeritus members
Annual elections for vice chair and emeritus members of APSAC, the Administrative and Professional Staff Advisory Committee, took place at the committee's April 11 meeting.
Dan Vukobratovich, information systems auditor in Internal Audit, was elected vice chair for 2018-19. He is an at-large member of APSAC.
Under APSAC's operating procedures, Vukobratovich will become chair for 2019-20. The current vice chair, Brittany Vale, will become chair for 2018-19.
APSAC elected four members who are completing their terms to serve an additional year as nonvoting emeritus members. Their role is to assist with continuity, using their knowledge of the University and APSAC's structure and process. The 2018-19 emeritus members will be Adrienne Albrecht, Mark Evans, Abby Hostetler and Loran Carleton Parker. Parker is completing a year as APSAC chair.
These persons will take their new positions June 1, the same time at which new members officially join the committee. APSAC will have a recognition luncheon and transition meeting May 9, and 15 new members will be welcomed.
Also at the April 11 meeting, APSAC members continued their pattern of hearing information to remain aware of matters around the University, such as tuition remission or the Transform Purdue process, and sharing news of problems faced by employees -- not named -- in areas such as managing prescriptions to being sure how to be involved in Purdue Global. APSAC also discussed its progress in upgrading its communication to A/P staffers through the Sentinel newsletter.
APSAC also heard a report on final details for the coming talk by Eva Kor, a widely noted Holocaust survivor and forgiveness advocate. Kor, who is considered a very strong speaker, will be at Purdue at 6:30 p.m. April 24 to deliver this year's presentation in the Richard A. Hadley APSAC Professional Development Series. Everyone at Purdue is invited.
