Governing Council Elections Process 

Each spring in accordance with BSA Operating Procedures & By-Laws  BSA sends out a call for nominations to encourage people to run for open seats on Berkeley Staff Assembly's Governing Council (GC). Members of GC are elected for a 3 Year term based on the fiscal year with terms beginning July 1- June 30. As a result approximately one third of the council rotates off to make room for new members to join in. The number of open seats vary each year depending on how many current GC members have completed their terms.

 Staff are encouraged to nominate engaged staff members who are willing to commit some time and effort into sharing and advocating for staff concerns.  You may nominate any current Berkeley staff member(s), including yourself.

Serving on the GC is fun, challenging, and a great way to network and develop leadership and interpersonalskills. GC members have the opportunity to meet staff from all over campus while working collaborativelyon BSA activities. Current BSA programs include:

We also encourage proposals for new BSA initiatives.

 We encourage all staff interested in joining the GC to attend one or both of the  next two GC meetings (March 23rd and April 13th) see calendar for details
