The Administrative and Professional Staff Advisory Committee and friends gathered May 9 for a luncheon to celebrate the annual transition of members and leaders. In addition, the group presented the annual APSAC Excellence Award for outstanding service to Purdue.

The luncheon celebrated both people and a year of significant, though often behind-the-scenes, work -- for example, facilitating information, serving on University committees, working with administrators on various decisions, helping individual employees with issues. A regular business meeting followed the luncheon.

The official transition date is June 1. APSAC thanked those completing their terms as of that date: Adrienne Albrecht, Caren Archer, Jackie Baumgardt, Mark Evans, Joelle Schaumberg, Steve George (Fort Wayne representative), Pam Graf, Michael Hill, Abby Hostetler, Mike Piggott and Loran Carleton Parker. Parker is completing a year as APSAC chair.

Completing a year as emeritus members for 2017-18 were Sam Guffey, Nicole Noel, Mary Ann Prah and Tiffany Weatherford. Emeritus members serve a nonvoting year after their term to provide support, counsel and continuity. For 2018-19, the emeritus members will be Albrecht, Evans, Hostetler and Parker.

Parker made the traditional passing of the gavel to Brittany Vale, the current vice chair, who will be APSAC chair for 2018-19. By election at the April meeting, Dan Vukobratovich will become 2018-19 vice chair.
