Last call for Communications Subcommittee applications
If you haven’t heard about the Communications Advisory Subcommittee, this new subcommittee of the OP Staff Assembly will convene in the fall. The group is looking for six members who are good problem solvers, interested in facilitating staff engagement and want to learn about employee communications.
You can apply to join the committee by submitting your application to OPStaffAssembly@ucop.edu by 5 p.m. this Friday, Aug. 1. Find the application form and more details, including eligibility criteria and meeting schedule, on the Communications Advisory Subcommittee website.
The idea for the subcommittee originated from the Staff Engagement Initiative, in which staff expressed an interest in helping to strengthen and facilitate communications throughout UCOP. The group will serve in an advisory capacity to Staff Assembly and UCOP Internal Communications on issues involving communications with the OP community.
Members will get involved in such activities as providing input on selected communications, relaying feedback from the OP community, helping to disseminate messages and supporting communications projects. Committee participation is also intended to be a learning experience and professional development opportunity.
Formal meetings will be held quarterly, and other informal interactions, ad hoc groups and periodic open meetings are also anticipated. The committee will be established as a pilot program and its effectiveness reevaluated after two years.
