Attention Committee Paper authors

Filed under: Latest news — Heather Leathley @ 9:55 am

Is that blinking cursor on that blank screen the bane of your existence?

Do you wish you had a template or guidance that might help you get started on that report that’s due to that committee secretary that keeps sending you “Sorry to chase, but…” emails?

Wish there was just one standard cover sheet that would work for every committee across the University?

Can’t remember where the University’s Diary of Meetings got moved to on the internet? Kicking yourself for not bookmarking it when you had the chance?

Did you know there is now a Committee Portal on SharePoint dedicated to providing you with all of the information and guidance you might need for that upcoming paper, along with loads of useful links to obscure corners of the University website? No, you didn’t?! Well, no wonder that cursor is so lonely on that blank screen!

Using the experience and feedback of committee secretaries and paper authors across the University, the Portal has been designed with your needs in mind. Broken up into three sections:

  • Resources for paper authors and sponsors
  • Committees, sub-committees and groups
  • Resources for committee secretaries, each deals directly with the questions that have come from various committee roles and the resources that have provided the most assistance over the years.

So, what are you waiting for? Check it out!
