Elected Council members and appointed Representatives to committees shall be allowed adequate time to attend scheduled meetings, but shall be expected to continue to fulfill the responsibilities of their University positions.
The Executive Committee shall nominate Staff representatives to University and Campus committees, with preference to current Council members where allowed. Those representatives will report on the progress of committee activities to the Council for the duration of their appointment.
As identified in the constitution, the Council shall invite individuals from other employee groups to serve as ex-officio, non-voting members of the Council. These positions shall be reviewed annually, and re-appointed by a majority vote of the Council.
With the exception of section 4 A, the Bylaws may be amended by a majority vote of the Council Members present at a regular monthly meeting. Proposed amendments to the Bylaws must be presented one meeting prior to voting on the amendments. If there is an additional amendment or change to a proposed amendment, a motion must be made, seconded and passed, that waives the "one meeting prior to voting on the amendment" bylaw, and then the proposed amendment can be considered by the Council Members present.
Upon notification from University Human Resource Services, Section 4A may be amended by the Executive Committee to reflect the addition or deletion of a department or a departmental name change without a vote and one prior month notification. All BPC representatives must be notified promptly of any such changes.
