Amanda Cluxton

Amanda Bachus

Convener
UC E-mail: amanda.bachus@uc.edu

In my role as  UCUAADA convener, I provide leadership related to keeping Board responsibilities and monthly meetings on track and moving forward. I have oversight of room scheduling for meetings, supporting the programming chair in organizing meeting agendas and speakers, and serving as the primary point of contact for internal and external constituents. Typically, I spend some time each week checking in on UCUAADA related business to ensure the group is visible and meeting its mission.

Secretary
UC E-mail: jason.autry@uc.edu

The secretary serves as the records keeper of the organization and the main disseminator of information relevant to the advising community. This position also maintains the official UCUAADA list-serv, vetting information and adding new members when requested. This position also serves as a support person for the other executive positions, helping where needed in event planning or program development.

Program Chair
UC E-mail: Kate.Petach@uc.edu

The program chair, organizes and initiates, with the assistance of the UCUAADA Executive Board, program content for the monthly UCUAADA meetings. The program chair would ensure that the content would be sensitive to the needs of the general body of UCUAADA and would focus on important updates, best practices, and general professional development opportunities. Further, there may be other UCUAADA sponsored events that would require coordinating the programming or general logistics. Additionally, the program chair would be responsible for reminding and following up with any and all presenters both prior to and after the meetings or events.

Award & Recognition Chair
UC E-mail: jennifer.lewis@uc.edu

The award & recognition chair serves as the lead in planning the awards portion of the UCUAADA End of the Year Banquet. A committee is formed at the beginning of Fall to manage the Sarah Grant Barber Advising awards.  The position allows for creativity in finding new ways to recognize advisors at UC. This award & recognition chair works closely with the Executive Board to consider recipients for the Barbara Schooley Award as well. The position is quite fulfilling and leads to great camaraderie with campus colleagues.

Communications Chair
UC E-mail: alejo.delgado@uc.edu

As Communications Chair is a new position I am not sure that there is a set role at this point. Currently, I monitor the UCUAADA Twitter account and have been working to set up Twitter ‘training’ for advisors. The hope is that this will help advisors connect more and it is an alternative way to access advising information. Other responsibilities have been the development of a UCUAADA ‘logo’ that can be used by the group (which is a work in progress) and providing support to the other offices in communication efforts. One of the main charges in the by-laws is to coordinate acknowledgement of advisors who present and publish, which is something that definitely needs to be worked on.

My role involves mostly attending Officer and general UCUAADA meetings, providing input and helping wherever I can. Time commitment is probably no more than 4 hours a month including the meetings, emails and any actions I need to take.
