Selection

  1. The Financial Manager Selection Committee shall consist of the current Financial Manager or designee, one member of the Council of Presidents, and two members of the Senate, one graduate and one undergraduate, chosen by the Senate. By a date specified in the By-Laws of the Association, the Selection Committee shall nominate an individual to serve as Associate Financial Manager. This nomination shall require confirmation by a two-thirds vote of the Senate.

  2. Once confirmed by the Senate, the Associate Financial Manager shall undertake such responsibilities as are assigned by the Financial Manager, in order to become familiar with the duties and responsibilities of the Financial Manager and with the finances and operations of the Association and its agencies. During this period, the Associate Financial Manager shall be a non-voting ex-officio member of all bodies on which the Financial Manager serves.

  3. By a date specified in the By-Laws of the Association, but in any case no later than the beginning of the sixth week of Spring quarter, the Financial Manager Selection Committee shall reconvene and evaluate the performance of the Associate Financial Manager. The Selection Committee shall then decide either to nominate the Associate Financial Manager as Financial Manager, or to interview additional candidates before making a nomination. The final nomination shall be transmitted to the current Senate before it dissolves, where it shall require a two-thirds vote for approval.

  4. On a date specified in the By-Laws of the Association, but in any case no later than the last day of Spring quarter, the new Financial Manger shall take office, provided that his or her appointment has been confirmed by the Senate. The Financial Manager shall serve until a successor has taken office.

  5. In the event of a vacancy in the office of Financial Manager, the Financial Manager Selection Committee (excluding the Financial Manager or designee) shall convene and nominate a replacement for confirmation by the Senate, such confirmation requiring a two-thirds vote.

    During this process, the Council of Presidents may nominate an Acting Financial Manager, who shall take office immediately upon nomination, but whose office shall terminate upon the adjournment of the next meeting of the Senate unless confirmed at that meeting by a two-thirds vote. Following confirmation by the Senate, the Acting Financial Manager shall serve for a period of no more than 30 days, not counting days between quarters, but may be re-appointed for an additional term of fourteen days if no replacement has been found, such re-appointment requiring prior approval of the Senate by a two-thirds vote.

  6. The Financial Manager shall not, during his or her term of office, serve as an elected member of the Senate or of the Council of Presidents. However, provided that he or she is not reapplying for the position of Financial Manager, the current Financial Manager may run in the Spring quarter general election for election to the new Senate or Council of Presidents and, if elected, may serve on that body throughout the normal term of office.

  7. At the time that it approves the nomination of the Financial Manager, the Senate shall also approve a contract or letter of appointment specifying the terms and conditions under which he or she shall hold office.
