Members at Large
In 2011, NUSAC created a Member at Large designation, intended to allow a limited role for former NUSAC Council members and University staff in good standing. The purpose of this designation is to provide access to skills and abilities that may be needed beyond what is available on the 25-member Council. The names of individuals who are interested in assisting the Council as a Member at Large are kept on a special list and contacted by the NUSAC chair to assist with specific, time-limited projects based on their interest and availability.
Members at Large have the right to accept or decline a task request, but once they agree to help, they are expected to devote the time needed to complete the project and to meet the stated deadline. Members at Large are not official Council members (do not attend meetings/nonpublic NUSAC events nor receive NUSAC internal correspondence). This designation is a way to increase the capacity of the volunteer council, expand the Council's expertise, capture the interest of those who may want to participate but who may not yet be eligible for NUSAC membership, and allow the Council to network and diversify its representation. Additionally, the Member at Large designation is a way to keep continuity and historical memory in a Council that, due to its structure, has frequent turnover.
If you are interested in becoming a Member at Large, please contact the current NUSAC chair Apryl Schlueter or e-mail the NUSAC e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
