ZOOM OPEN OFFICE HOURS FOR OSU SEARCH ADVOCATES:

OSU Search Advocates are invited to bring questions, suggestions and ideas to informal Zoom "drop in" office hours with Anne Gillies (Search Advocate Program Director). Office hours are open to anyone affiliated with OSU - please don't hesitate to stop in and say hello.   You may also contact Anne directly at any time with your questions--no need to wait for office hours!  If you are not affiliated with OSU, please contact Anne by email (anne.gillies@oregonstate.edu) to arrange an individual meeting.   Click here for office hours schedule and Zoom links.

CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT

In order to ensure quality and consistency with program recommendations, each advocate must complete 3 units of continuing education every 12 months.  Eligibility is calculated each September by tabulating CE credit recorded between September of the previous year and the end of August of the current year.  Options to meet this requirement include:

  1. Search Advocate Workshops, Community of Practice meetings, and Update Workshop offerings - please earn your CE credits directly from the Search Advocate Program AT LEAST EVERY OTHER YEAR
    • Search Advocate Foundations series (3 credits)
    • Search Advocate Annual Update workshop (3 credits)
    • Community of Practice meeting (1 credit)
    • Other Search Advocate workshops or programs (credits vary)
  2. Other continuing education offerings - you may request CE credit for the following during years in which you do NOT complete your CE through the Search Advocate Program

CE credits for Search Advocate offerings are recorded from the event rosters, so be sure to sign in if you attend!  We recommend you select Search Advocate program continuing education offerings at least every other year (to keep current with the program's recommended practices); you may use Search Advocate program offerings or other offerings listed above for alternate years.  CE credits earned through the Search Advocate program are recorded automatically; credits from all other programs are only recorded AFTER you send email to anne.gillies@oregonstate.edu as described above.
