Complete and submit the application form. Please note you may also nominate someone you think you would be a good Staff Council member.
Applications will be reviewed by the Selections Committee which involves a clearance check through Human Resources. Applicants and their supervisors will be notified of selection and asked to review and sign the Staff Council Membership Agreement.
During the three-year term, members are required to attend the monthly General Council meeting (currently held the first Wednesday of the month from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.), as well as at least one sub-committee meeting each month. This results in an anticipated minimum time dedication of six hours per month to Staff Council meetings and assignments.
