AP Assembly

AP Assembly - Letter from the President

Dear Colleagues,

The AP Assembly is a professional organization comprised of all Administrative Professionals on campus. We serve in an advising capacity to the university president; have representation on the University Senate, as well as various Senate committees; provide opportunities for connection with our five committees (Recognition, Communications, Community Engagement, Personal and Professional Development, and Voice of the AP); and strive to develop community across campus.

The elected, volunteer executive board provides leadership guided by our AP Assembly constitution.  Please look for our bi-monthly AP Assembly Newsletters for updates on upcoming events or check our meeting and events link on this website. The 2018-2019 Board looks forward to serving you this year through our goal to best meet the needs of the AP community.

As your President this year, in addition to working with AP Association to have our voice heard, I aim to accomplish the following:

  • Branding: This year, the AP Assembly Executive Board will work on driving more involvement from APs on campus. We hope to attract more APs to attend our meetings, get involved with committees, and attend our special sessions such as professional development and community engagement opportunities. The Assembly will also work to align and support the diversity guidelines established by Oakland University
  • Recognizing: AP’s across campus do so many great things that positively impact our students, offices, and community. We want to continue to recognize those efforts through the AP shout outs and established awards. Our goal this year is to continue this recognition and work to establish methods so every AP on campus has an opportunity to be recognized for their hard work and efforts.

Participating in meetings and other AP assembly hosted sessions, provides an excellent opportunity to collaborate and connect with others on campus.

I look forward to working with all of you this year,

Ann Voorheis-Sargent, Ph.D.

President, AP Assembly
