Communications Policy

PEA general membership and executive committee members, in addition to other organizations within the campus community, are encouraged to submit to the University Relations committee all items that may be of general interest to PEA members.  Items of interest may include, but should not be limited to, awards and accomplishments of association members or campus departments, professional development opportunities, changes in benefits or policies, and programs encouraging individual wellbeing (physical fitness, financial management, family issues, artistic events, etc.).  Inappropriate items would include political, religious, and business activities that are private in nature or that would be considered offensive to the general membership of the association.

In order to minimize the number of emails to our constituency, an email will be sent to the general membership on the first working day of each month.  To be included in that email, items must be sent to the University Relations committee at least five working days before the next email will be sent.  Any communication that needs to be sent at another time must be approved by the PEA president.  We would encourage advance notification as much as possible as a courtesy to interested members, so they have time to RSVP or otherwise plan their own schedules around activities in which they are interested in participating.

Also if you know of someone that has won an award or has been recognized in some way, please let us know.
