Tim Aldridge, facilities and operations manager at the University of North Georgia's (UNG) Oconee Campus, has been elected to serve as vice chairman of the University System of Georgia Staff Council (USGSC), where he will serve for one year before becoming chairman in July 2015.
"The USGSC advances the mission of the system as a whole and promotes and fosters the welfare of system staff through the combined creativity of staff representatives from system institutions," Aldridge said. "It is a representative group for all staff at all institutions of the University System of Georgia."
The council participates in the process of USG governance by advising, recommending, and consulting with the chancellor concerning the establishment of policies and procedures. The USGSC provides procedural guidelines to system institutions relevant to the formulation of staff representative bodies. These bodies address local issues and forward system-wide concerns to the USGSC. The council maintains a system-wide communications network to provide for efficient transmission of relevant information to system staff.
