Employee Assembly elections are coming up

Election materials for all staff members interested in running for the Employee Assembly (EA) will be posted online Jan. 16. Such staff members need to complete those materials by Feb. 4 and attend one of two information sessions, held Jan. 23 and 29. Elections will be held Feb. 11-22, with results announced by March 1.
