Election Process

Nomination Period: The time period when Staff Advisory Council (S.A.C.) is accepting nominations for new representatives is usually mid-Spring. To submit a colleague's name for nomination, or to self-nominate, email sac@pacific.edu.

S.A.C. representatives communicate with their constituent group regarding staff issues and S.A.C. activities, as well as represent constituent concerns at S.A.C. meetings. Representatives serve two-year terms and serve constituent groups within their divisions.
Nomination Period end with a confirmation of the nomination by the election committee.

In order to fulfill the requirements of our by-laws, prior to the election, our constituent list was reviewed by division and by constituent count/designation of non-exempt and exempt status.  We further received information from both internal and external sources that our representation grouping was not effectively reaching all area constituents and a reorganization to enhance communication from SAC representatives to constituents would be welcome.  

The review considered equal representation from constituents in both categories, both exempt and non-exempt and from the administrative and academic divisions.  Based on the count in the administrative areas, a number of representatives were assigned, i.e., President's Division, 2 reps and Student Life, 3 reps.  Furthermore, equal representation, both from non-exempt and exempt staff.  The break down is such that it allows representation from divisions, areas of proximity and both exempt and non-exempt staff have representation. Open seats for the 2017-2019 cycle are:
