Administrative Professional Advisory Council APAC

Welcome to APAC


APAC (Administrative Professional Advisory Council) at Washington State University provides institutional-level advocacy in support of administrative professional (AP) staff.

We do this by:

  • Meeting regularly with WSU senior administration, including the president and provost, the WSU Board of Regents, and various University committees and councils.
  • Communicating with APs at all WSU locations about matters of interest, and in turn soliciting feedback, comments, and suggestions from APs. We want to hear your voice!
  • Fostering the idea that APAC can assist AP employees in transforming their work life at WSU.
  • Bringing relevant and effective professional development to AP staff through guest speakers, seminars, scholarships, events, workshops and grants.
  • Recognizing outstanding AP achievements with contribution awards.

APAC is made up of 18 AP members. Council members represent a variety of areas including academic and managerial departments as well as WSU campuses in Everett, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, and Extension offices statewide.  Council members are appointed in the spring and serve a three-year term beginning in July.

Nominations are open for new council members!  Applications for new members are due March 30, 2017.
