Today, for the first time Classified and A&P employees were able to cast their votes for members of UTMB’s Employee Advisory Council. It’s been a long road to get to this point, but I’m proud to see us here. The journey started with Dr. Stobo in late 2006 and was picked up with gusto by President Callender. A “build team” has been nurturing and incubating the EAC, working hard for the past year to put guildelines and processes in place, setting goals, building a web site, looking at what others have done. More recently, Information Services stepped up to help build a really impressive online voting application; the IS team that worked on this has been outstanding. I know the EAC members really appreciate the effort.
It’s an important time for the council, as it shifts focus from one heavy on planning and organization, to one where the group gets to do their “real” work. I hope you’ll join me in following the group’s progress with interest.
We have some great nominees, candidates willing to work for you. Take a look at who they are and cast your vote for the person you think will do the best job.
