Call for Members: Copyright Advisory Committee

Monday, April 15, 2024

A representative on the Copyright Advisory Committee is needed for a one-year term starting immediately.

The Copyright Advisory Committee (CAC) serves as the primary forum for collaborative decision-making regarding copyright and its applications on campus. The committee will work to keep campus administration, faculty, staff, and students informed about the current and ongoing status of copyright and licensing related issues, projects, and developments.

Openings: One
Term: May 1, 2024, to April 30, 2025 (renewable)
Deadline: April 19, 2024

What’s involved

Broadly speaking, the Copyright Advisory Committee develops the University-wide communication plan for copyright, provides advice and guidance on University policies as they relate to copyright issues, and develops recommendations on the use of copyright exceptions as they apply to the University. Please see the committee terms of reference for more information.

The UWSA representative on this committee is expected to:

  • attend regular meetings,
  • consult with the UWSA Operations Team before and/or after meetings on any issues affecting staff members, and
  • prepare a brief annual report summarizing the activities of the committee for the year and any implications for staff.

Qualifications

We’re looking for someone familiar with copyright issues and how they affect the work of staff on campus. Members who work in communications, teaching, or teaching support roles might be particularly well suited.

All UWSA members are eligible, including those whose contracts end within the advertised term of this appointment.

Time commitment

The Committee normally meets once a term for two hours. Special meetings may also be called to deal with specific issues. Some advance reading is often necessary.

This is a one-year term that may be renewed at the discretion of the UWSA president.

How to apply

Please complete the UWSA committee application form by April 19. Please direct any questions to the chair of the UWSA Appointments Committee, Carly Richardson, at uwsa@uwaterloo.ca. Applications will be reviewed the week of April 22.
