APAC History

The Appointed Personnel Organization Council (APOC) was chartered in 1992 under President Manuel Pacheco to represent Appointed Professionals.  At the time, appointed personnel had no organization and no means of representation within the University administration. The original organizing committee was led by Tim Jull, and the team created a proposal to form the council. APOC was created to provide representation, allowing Appointed Professionals to have a voice within the University’s administration. In 2006, APOC was renamed the Appointed Professionals Advisory Council (APAC). The formation of APAC paved the way for Appointed Professionals to participate in Shared Governance, the approach to governance endorsed by The University of Arizona administration
