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 on this website. The 2019-2020 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, we aim to have you attend meetings and leave feeling:

Informed: Come learn about the exciting work being done around campus. Each meeting includes a brief presentation from an array of OU departments.

Inspired: Meet others and hear their story of how they contribute to the OU community. Find new ways to be excited and proud of the collective efforts of the OU community to make OU a great place to work.

Involved: In addition to being inspired, you'll have the opportunity to get involved in any of the AP Assembly Committees, OU Employee Resource Groups, or any of the many wonderful community service organizations on campus. Come find the one that's right for you.

Included: Most of all, regardless of whether you're an AP, CT, or any other member of the OU community, we want you to feel included. All of our meetings and events, including the amazing trainings offered by our Professional Development Committee, are open to all employees. AP Assembly recognizes the importance and necessity of having a diverse membership, and we both need and value all opinions and participation toward making OU a diverse and inclusive place for employees, students, and campus guests.

We hope you will join us as we continue making Oakland University a fantastic place to work and learn.

I look forward to working on behalf of all of you this year,

Dan Arnold, Ph.D.

President, AP Assembly
