Professional Council

Dear MSU Professional Colleagues:

It’s time to elect two new members to next year’s Professional Council. We seek energetic individuals to fill one open seat representing Academics, one representing Student Affairs (please see attached description of professional affiliations).

Members are elected to a three-year term, starting 9/1/14. The charge includes attending meetings twice a month, contributing to the council via secretarial, budget, or other organizational skills, representing Professional Council on one of the university-wide councils or executive search committees if the opportunity arises, and most importantly, participating in our mission to facilitate communication on campus, using your particular experience, perspective and talents as a professional employee.

Please do not hesitate to call or write to anyone currently on Professional Council about the charge, scope or time commitment.

To nominate yourself or another fantastic colleague: please email by Monday, May 19, 2014 and include your (or the nominee’s) name and area of professional affiliation. We also ask professionals to submit a single, brief paragraph describing how your work life at MSU aligns with one of the identified professional affiliations (detailed below), and why you would like to be on Professional Council.

Nominations will be collated and sent out to all professional employees for election/confirmation during May. We thank you in advance for your interest in serving with us!

Next Meeting: May 7, 2014

The Professional Council (PC) was established by MSU's President in 1979 as a means of facilitating communication and cooperation among professionals, and communication with administration in the development of general decisions and policies which affect professional employees. PC is not an advocacy group. The Council is intended to promote collaborative efforts by professionals with others on campus in mutual efforts to effectively and efficiently carry out the land-grant missions at Montana State University, Bozeman. Learn more about the Professional Council.

Professional Council meets twice each month during the academic year, and/or as called by the Chair. All meetings are conducted according to the MSU policy on open meetings.
