The Staff Senate has seven standing committees that serve as advisory bodies in accomplishing specific objectives to meet the Staff Senate's purpose and goals.

Assisting with the coordination of the Annual Faculty/Staff Picnic in May, improving employment policies and sponsoring lunch hour seminars for personal and professional development are some of the services we've initiated.

Executive Committee Officers

Within the Staff Senate, leadership shall be provided by the Executive Committee, which consists of a President, Vice President/President Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and Staff Relations positions, as well as the non-voting ex officio member (UAH Administration representative). The Executive Committee will be selected annually by the Senate members at the start of the new term in June. Executive Committee members will serve for a one-year term and may not be elected to serve more than two consecutive terms in any capacity on the Executive Committee.
