PSO News: Time to Run for a Board Position

*PSO Elections Are Nearly Upon Us

Elections for the PSO are nearly upon us, so it is time to nominate yourself to run for a position on the Board. The PSO Board awards scholarships, encourages recognition, and facilitates networking for professional staff at the university.

All members of the PSO (stands for "Professional Staff Organization") can serve on the Board and vote in elections. And everyone who is professional staff at the UW (also known as "exempt") is a member of the PSO. Joining the board is not the only way to get involved with the PSO, but it can be the most rewarding.

Nominations are due by Friday, May 22nd, 5:00 PM

Elections will be held May 25th through June 5th. Results will be announced the following week.

The Professional Staff Organization (PSO), established in 1990, represents the issues and concerns of professional staff to the university administration, the campus, and our local community. All UW professional staff are members of PSO.

Over the years PSO has provided information to legislators, represented professional staff on faculty councils and committees ranging from academics to facilities, and worked to improve communication and build camaraderie among the professional staff throughout the university system. The PSO also collaborates with the UW administration on other issues relevant to professional staff.

To stay in touch with our members, we host meetings for staff in autumn and spring quarters, often with professional staff as speakers, to talk candidly and collegially about issues at the university. We also publish a biannual newsletter and award scholarships to help our members pursue professional development opportunities.
