Extension Has New CAPA Representation

| Leave a comment

Extension P&A employees have elected new Council of Academic Professionals and Administrators (CAPA) representatives who will serve for the next three years. They are: Neil Anderson, director, Resource Development Unit; Danny Sussman, webmaster, Information Technology; Renee Obrecht-Como (alternate), associate program director, Health & Nutrition Programs; and Dave Nicolai (alternate, write-in candidate), Extension crops educator, Regional Office, Hutchinson. Thank you to those who have served the past three years: Neil Anderson, Dave Nicolai, Karen Lilley and Claudia Cody.

CAPA ensures that P&A concerns and perspectives are considered in the areas of University governance and representation, compensation and benefits, communications and professional development. The council meets regularly with University administrators, sends representatives to the University Senate and committees, and is represented in all college, campus and administrative units. Extension P&A employees can get involved by bringing their concerns and ideas to their elected CAPA representatives.
