2022 Call for Board and Committee Nominations

The 2022 nominations period is open until May 4, 2022.  

Committee and Executive Board service are rewarding and enjoyable experiences that requires only a few hours per month. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet colleagues from across the University who will help to enrich your work life with Penn.

The 2022-2023 election for officers will occur after PPSA’s Annual Members Meeting. The annual meeting will be held Thursday, May 19, 2022, at 12:00pm ET, at which we are honored to be joined by Katy Milkman, James G. Dinan Professor, at the Wharton School, co-founder and co-director of the Behavior Change for Good Initiative.

All full-time, monthly-paid University staff members are welcome to participate in this annual meeting.

An online election will take place to identify the Chair-Elect and the Members At-Large in the days following the annual meeting. University Council Committee members will be appointed by the PPSA Tri-Chairs from amongst all applicants following the election.
