Business Affairs Advisory Forum

This web page has been established to serve as an information resource for business and administrative managers. The site will feature agendas and presentations made at BAAF meetings, other presentations of interest, and an archive of policy/procedure related announcements.

BAAF membership includes business managers and directors at the University. BAAF meetings are usually held three times a year, generally in February, June/July and October. However, special meetings occasionally will be called on an as-needed basis.

The agendas for BAAF meetings are planned in conjunction with input and advice from the BAAF Planning Committee. Please contact any member of the BAAF Planning Committee with your thoughts and ideas for future meetings.
