Call for Volunteers – System Administration UIS Advisory Group

You asked for it and we heard you loud and clear! UIS is reconvening our System Administration advisory group and we invite you to join. We are calling for volunteers to be a part of the new group, starting in the new year.

Here is what the Advisory Group will do

The Advisory group will help UIS better support our customers’ needs. You will provide assistance in the following areas: 

  • Evaluate new services and equipment
  • Provide feedback to help shape direction of the services we provide, currently and in the future
  • Offer input on how we are doing

Membership Requirements and Commitment

Here are the membership requirements and what your commitment to the group involves:

  • You must be a System Administration, Advancement or Foundation employee. We invite employees located at 1800 Grant and all remote offices.
  • Your time commitment will be about an hour per month. If we have specific product evaluation needs, we may call for volunteers to offer additional time to serve on a targeted, short-term committee.
  • When we have enough to share, we’ll call a quarterly status meeting at 1800 Grant and via GoTo Meeting. We’ll predominantly communicate digitally.

How do I sign up?

If you would like to be a part of the UIS Advisory Group, please email Matt Smith at by Friday, December 23, 2016. Matt will then send out the invitations for the January meeting.

The kickoff meeting is Monday, January 9, 2017 from 10-11 a.m. at 1800 Grant in the 1st Floor Conference Room. We’ll also have a GoTo Meeting set up for our remote members.

Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to your feedback in 2017!
