Cyndi Eichele (Staff), Manager of Registration and Commencement, Registrar
It is with great enthusiasm that I express my interest in the Staff-AAP Advisory Council.
Some may say that my three year experience here at the Law Center isn’t long, however, the unique nature of the Registrar’s Office has exposed and intertwined me in the workings of the Law Center similar to one who has been here for 10 years.
I currently work closely with students, most often in an extremely stressful situation and to the best of my abilities, I keep a priority of providing an exceptional and personal experience with those I interact with.
Although difficult at times, as I try to work within the confines of protocol, it’s important that I work to improve areas of need and utilize my education and skills to broach untapped areas of great potential.
I’ve come to realize that it is important to be an active member of the community in which I work, to feel invested in the purpose, to get away from the confines of my desk and work with and learn from others outside of my office. As a representative on the Advisory Council, I would use this position to not only strengthen my current relationships, but intentionally forge new ones that will improve the services of the Law Center and provide an ever enriching experience to the community.
Lynda Sanders (Staff), Associate Director of Exam Administration, Registrar's Office
My name is Lynda Sanders. I currently work in the Office of the Registrar as the Associate Director of Exams. I have had the pleasure of serving on the Staff AAP Council for one year as the Law Center's Council President as well as a member of the Work Place Environment sub-committee.
Even though I am a current member of the council my term is nearing an end. Being given the opportunity to be involved in the Advisory Council has enlightened my awareness for the importance of the council. I would love to continue to be a voice for our community by becoming a member of the Staff /AAP Council to be a voice for the matters impacting our experiences and challenges in the workplace.
