UNC CAUSE Organization and Conference Governance

UNC CAUSE is governed by an Executive Team and an Advisory Board that is made up of representatives from each of the UNC System campuses.  Additionally from year to year for the sake of the annual UNC CAUSE Conference there is a Conference Planning Team.  The two co-chairs of the annual conference sit on the Executive Team during their two-year term and they are staggered by one year to create a transfer of knowledge and continuity from year to year.  The annual planning teams are comprised of representatives put forward by their campus or Advisory Board members.  Each year the conference is hosted on a rotating basis by either the Western, Central, or Eastern Universities.

Campus Conference Liaisons

Campus Conference Liaisons serve a two-year term, with an option to stay on for two additional years.
