Executive Council

Members of WIMS FY16 EC

The Executive Council prioritizes goals, plans and directs activities for the WIMS Faculty Organization. Officers are elected and terms begin July 1. The president appoints committee chairs who serve during her term. We believe by providing proper training during the office-elect year we will ensure a smooth "passing of the information baton" from the current officers and chairs to the incumbents. This process will permit the organization to grow and continue to succeed for years to come. 

2016-2017 Executive Council meetings
All are held in the H. Edward Phillips Room (2nd floor Murphy building) from 12:00-1:00 PM.

  • October 7, 2016
  • January 27, 2017
  • April 28, 2017
