Schedule of Meetings for 2012-2013
Special Staff Senate meetings may be called by the chair or by at least one-third of the members of the Senate (Bylaws, Article IV, Section 2).
Article II, Section 2, of the Staff Senate Bylaws states: "There shall be no alternates for representatives of the Senate. Absence from three (3) regular Senate meetings by a representative shall be cause for dismissal at the discretion of the Chair. When two (2) absences have occurred in a Senate year, the Chair shall inform the representative in writing of the policy regarding absences, with a copy to the appropriate member-group president. This requirement will be waived if the second absence occurs at the July meeting.
