An election to replace four EAC members who have completed their commitment to the council will begin Nov. 4, and conclude Nov. 22. Our thanks go to the following members who have completed their commitment: Susanne Johnston (Academic Enterprise), Tonya Campbell (Correctional Managed Care), Michele Lockwood (Institutional Support), and Souby George (Hospital and Clinics).
To be placed on the ballot as a nominee for the 2013 elections, complete the following steps: 
  • Visit the EAC website
  • Provide a brief biography that describes your role at UTMB (less than 300 words) and a statement about why you want to serve on the EAC. Include all your contact information (phone numbers, email and your department).
  • Provide an up-to-date digital photo of yourself to be placed on the site for review by your peers.
  • Supply a statement of support from your supervisor/manager indicating your ability to devote 3-5 hours each month for the three-year commitment period to the council. The Academic Enterprise requires Executive Director/Director approval as well.
Email your biographical information, statement of why you want to be elected, supervisor endorsement and your digital photo to both Samantha McBroom at swmcbroo@utmb.edu and Susanne Johnston at sjohnsto@utmb.edu.
The EAC exists to foster bi-directional communication and dialog for all Classified staff, Administrative & Professional (A&P) positions, and new for this year, Non-Teaching staff (excluding residents).
The Council, which is sponsored and endorsed by the Office of the President, works to promote a positive and collaborative work environment that is committed to assessing, prioritizing and communicating employee needs. It also serves as a focus group/advisory panel by providing a feedback loop on broad issues and potential new programs that can impact Classified staff, A&P positions, and Non-Teaching staff.
For the purposes of representation on the council, the university is grouped in four large segments: Academic Enterprise, Correctional Managed Care, Hospitals and Clinics, and Institutional Support.
