of New Officers/Members and Terms of Office:
The secretary’s position is a two-year term
according to the bylaws of Staff Council, although, as of late, the secretaries
have only been residing for a one year term.
When Angie Henson was nominated and accepted the position, she was
unaware of the two-year term, but she will think about it. It was suggested by Staff Council that the
secretary remain a two-year term position due to the importance of the
position, therefore it was requested that the position stay a two-year term.
The Staff Council is a little heavy on the one
year term members. The idea is to
stagger the terms to keep some continuity in membership. Stephanie Widick has volunteered to move to a
two-year term membership. Angie Henson
made a motion to change Stephanie’s status to a two-year term, Jason Ogg,
seconded, all were in favor, motion stands.
