Roles of the elected officers of the Support Staff Association (SSA) Executive committee

There are three elected officers on the SSA Executive Committee. They are elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Chair

The Chair chairs meetings, which are currently held once a month, except during the summer period.

The Chair is the SSA’s contact point with the University Executive Board (UEB) and the governing body. The Chair’s contact for the UEB is Bernie Topham and for the Governors it is Adrian Parry.

The Chair may have to make decisions in-between meetings (Chair’s Action) to make sure that the SSA is represented on various committees across campus.

The Chair produces a report for the AGM and hands over chair to the Vice-Chair for election of Chair.

Vice-Chair

The Vice-Chair assumes the above role in the Chair’s absence.

Secretary

The Secretary produces the agenda for the forthcoming meeting, emailing the committee for items to be included.

The Secretary takes notes at the meeting and produces minutes for the meeting which, once agreed by the next meeting as accurate, are published on the SSA web page.

The Secretary books the rooms and any refreshments for the committee meetings.

The Secretary maintains a current email distribution list of all SSA Executive Committee members.

  

The rest of the committee serve on various committees representing the interests of the support staff and make reports at the appropriate committee meeting. They are made up of various representatives from different departments across campus.
