Definition

All non-faculty, "exempt"* employees are members of the Administrative and Professional employee group. The Administrative and Professional Assembly was established to afford Administrative and Professional employees representative participation in the University governance process. Similar governance groups exist for other employee classifications: the University Senate for faculty members and the Staff Advisory Council for staff employees.

The Assembly is an elected body established at Auburn University by authority of the University Board of Trustees. The purpose of the Assembly is to advise the President regarding policies, procedures and general welfare issues affecting the Administrative and Professional employee group. The Assembly is composed of 21 members from the Administrative and Professional employee group. The Assembly meets quarterly and all meetings are open to Administrative and Professional employees. Representation on the Assembly is proportional among the vice presidential and presidential categories as determined by the Executive Committee of the Assembly. For a more detailed description of the Assembly's workings, please refer to the Administrative and Professional Assembly Constitution available on the Administrative and Professional Assembly web page.

Administrative and Professional employees are eligible to serve on various University Committees. Each spring all Administrative and Professional employees are surveyed as to interest in serving on these committees.

In addition to the University Committees, several Assembly committees exist for which all Administrative and Professional employees are eligible. A list of the Administrative and Professional Committees is available on the Administrative and Professional web page.

All Administrative and Professional employees are encouraged to discuss any policies or concerns affecting the Administrative and Professional employee group with their representative on the Assembly. A list of Assembly members is available on the Administrative and Professional web page.

*"Exempt" employees are monthly salaried employees. The term "exempt" derives from the Fair Labor Standards Act, a federal law, which establishes categories of employees eligible for overtime payment. In general the law "exempts" from overtime payment employees who are monthly salaried and declares "non-exempt" (from the law) hourly wage employees.
