COMMITTEE REPORTS

CEPAC-nominated representatives' submissions describing campus committee activities are available via our Committees Page.

Committee-related discussion:
UPBAC. CEPAC welcomed Jeanne Wagner, the CEPAC-nominated representative on UPBAC. Various issues of concern to the classified staff, relevant to UPBAC, were discussed including: a CEPAC budget amendment, the erosion of classified base salary increases imposed by mid-fiscal year effective dates, salary increase funding issues for part- or non-State funded classified positions, and the need for informative communication within the community regarding MUS salary issues. Sara France was asked to work with Jeanne in any area of concern requiring research or inquiry.

Communications with CEPAC-nominated Committee Representatives. Sheron McIlhattan voiced concern that important campus projects and issues, under discussion in committee, don't always reach CEPAC's attention in time for CEPAC to offer constituent input into their development. CEPAC acknowedged classified employees' enthusiastic commitment of time and effort to shared governance and committee work. CEPAC also recognised its responsibility to convey its expectations (particularly with respect to communications and reporting) to its nominated committee representatives. It was agreed that such dialogue, with both prospective and encumbent reps, should be improved. In relation to the last 3-6 months' efforts across campus to update committee membership and records, and to ensure comprehensive participation, Sara France undertook to enhance her recently initiated contact with each CEPAC-nominated representative to clarify CEPAC expectations.
