Administrative Professional Council accepting nominations for new representatives

Submitted by Shannon Dale

It is election time for CSU’s Administrative Professional Council, the arm of shared governance that works to represent and promote the interests of administrative professionals across the University. Currently, the APC includes over 40 representatives and Executive Committee members across 15 different areas.Administrative Professional Council nomination graphic

Be part of the conversation around the APC’s current initiatives, including:

  • Work-life balance
  • Salary and compensation
  • Professional Development Award Program
  • AP Evaluation Framework and Processes

APC wants to hear from APs, and the best way is to join APC or nominate someone you feel would be a great asset and champion for AP causes. Each meeting, the APC welcomes a member of the CSU administration and other campus leadership to present on the latest news, policies, and updates pertinent to administrative professionals. These presentations are followed by a question and answer session with the APC. Presentations from the 2017-18 term include:

  • President Tony Frank
  • Lynn Johnson, Vice President for University Operations
  • Tom Milligan, Vice President for External Relations
  • Office of General Council
  • Human Resources
  • Joe Parker, Director of Athletics

Now is the time to join these important conversations. The APC Nominations and Elections Committee is facilitating a call for nominations to fill open area representative positions within APC.

Nominate yourself or a colleague from your department to run for election for the coming year. Unique areas for APs that need more representation include research associates, off-campus employees, and on-campus departments not currently represented on APC. You can learn more about the APC and its representative areas at    

Nominations are due by Tuesday, March 27. Contact JR McGrath, APC Nominations and Elections chair, to nominate or if you have any questions at

APC Elections will be held in April through an online ballot. Please look for correspondence from your area representative with a link to vote.
