|Topic:||Exempt senate chairs from Assembly term limits|
|Proposed by:||UNCW delegation|
Whereas communication between the Assembly and the faculty senates and councils of the sixteen campuses is essential and is greatly improved when the faculty chairs of those bodies (or equivalent officers) serve as Assembly delegates; and
Whereas the Assembly encourages the campuses to make their senate/council chairs ex-officio delegates to the Assembly;
Therefore, be it resolved:
That the Bylaws shall be amended to exempt from term limits the chairs of those bodies who serve as delegates, and that section II.C of the Bylaws shall be revised as follows (addition):
C. The terms of delegates to the Assembly shall range from one (1) to three (3) years as established by each institution, and each institution shall assure continuity of delegation membership by a system of rotated terms. To be eligible as a delegate, a faculty member may not have served as a delegate to the Assembly for more than six (6) of the preceding nine (9) years, nor be selected to a term that would result in a violation of this limitation. However, a delegate shall be exempt from the above limitation while serving as chair or president of a faculty senate or council or as president of the campus faculty. Time spent while serving as an alternate is not counted in the above limitation. The Assembly Chair shall notify each delegation of any ineligible members.
