Call for Nominations for the
Weekly-Paid Staff Assembly
To all members of the WPSA:
We invite any eligible person to nominate one or more Weekly-paid employees for membership on the Executive Board. You may nominate yourself. There are currently 12 vacancies on the Executive Board.
The Executive Board: Our present Constitution of the Weekly Paid Staff Assembly indicates that the Board may contain up to 20 members, each elected for a two-year term. The Board is the decision-making body of the Assembly.
Who is eligible? Any Weekly-Paid University staff member (which is defined as any full-time, weekly-paid employee not covered by a collective bargaining agreement) is eligible to vote and run for office in the Assembly.
A Call for Nominations: You may nominate one or more Weekly paid employees or nominate yourself. If you are nominating someone else, your nomination letter should contain a statement that the nominee has agreed to serve if elected. Nomination letters should contain the name and place of work of the person being nominated as well as a brief statement indicating why you think he/she would make a good Board member. In publication, we may edit statements that are substantially longer than 25 words because of space.
Nominations should be sent to Marcia Dotson, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information about the Candidates and the Election: The list of nominees and their information will go out over the listserv the same week. Election day is scheduled for Thursday, April 13, from 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m. The location is Stiteler Hall, Political Science Lounge, first floor, 208 S. 37th Street. Voting will be by secret ballot and the results will be published in an upcoming issue of Almanac. For more information on this or any other WPSA information, visit our website at www.upenn.edu/wpsa.
