Name

The name of this committee shall be the Terry Dean’s Advisory Council (TDAC) of the Terry College of Business (the College) at the University of Georgia (the University). TDAC is an initiative of the College and is not the intention of the members to form an unincorporated association or any other juridical person.

Purpose

TDAC is the senior-level council of volunteers established for the purposes of promoting and improving the College. In particular, members of TDAC advise the Dean of the College, help foster corporate relationships, and participate in or lead activities for the good of the College.

Membership

The TDAC will consist of approximately 25 members. Members of the TDAC will nominate new members. The Dean, in consultation with the Executive Committee, will confer membership to nominees for three-year terms. The Dean may, in consultation with the Executive Committee, renew membership of current members of TDAC.

The Dean may assign faculty, staff and students to TDAC as ex-officio members. These ex-officio members will participate in TDAC activities including task forces. They will serve as resources to TDAC and assure that there is full communication between TDAC and the College.

All members of TDAC are expected to actively participate on the Council and help achieve its purpose. All members of TDAC are expected to contribute financially to the college annually and to support its capital campaigns.

Officers

TDAC officers consist of the Chair, Vice Chair, Past Chair, and committee chairs.

In Spring 2009, members of the TDAC will elect a Chair and a Vice Chair to serve two-year terms. At the fall 2011 and subsequent odd year fall meetings, only the Vice Chair will be elected. The current Vice Chair will become the Chair. The current Chair will become the Past Chair. New officers will be installed at the end of the election meeting.

Task Forces

The TDAC will use standing committees and also temporary committees created to achieve a specific project. All TDAC members will participate in at least one task force. Task force chairs may invite non-TDAC members to participate on their task forces. Initially, there will be one standing committee as described below.

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee consists of TDAC officers and the Dean. This committee is charged with the operation of the Council. It will make recommendations on the following: goals, changes to the bylaws, membership. The Executive Committee will also determine the need for task forces and assign members annually.

Meetings

The TDAC will normally meet three times per year in the fall, winter and spring. The Executive Committee will select and publicize meeting dates for each year and formulate agendas. The Executive Committee may call additional meetings as necessary. Task forces will meet more frequently as necessary to accomplish their goals.
