There is one casual vacancy on the College Council for a Non-Academic Staff Council Member.  The term of office will be from 1 January 2014 to 31 July 2015. The closing date for the return of nominations is this Thursday (21 November at midday). 

In the College Statutes, this category of members is described as those members of staff of the College “who are not academic teaching staff” (Statute 3.1(c)(iii)). 

The Regulations for the Election of Staff Members to Council defines academic teaching staff as “all persons holding appointments of Professor, Reader, Senior Lecturer, or Lecturer at the College” (see Regulations for the Election of Staff Members to Council 3(i)) so all other members of staff outside of this description are classed as not members of the academic teaching staff.

Any staff not included in this category are eligible to stand and vote as members of staff who are not part of the academic teaching staff. 

If you are interested in serving on the Council, or would like to nominate a colleague, please refer to the online documentation at the message link below for guidance.  You must send your nominations, in writing, on the appropriate nomination form, to the College Secretary’s Office.  All nominations must include the names of a proposer and a seconder, and the nominee’s consent, together with a 150 word (maximum) statement about the candidate.  

All nominations must be received by the College Secretary’s Office (FE26) no later than midday on Thursday 21 November 2013.

If more than one nomination is received an election will be held.  The timetable for the election will be:

Thursday 21 November 2013 (midday): Closing date for the return of nominations

Thursday 28 November 2013: Voting papers issued

Thursday 12 December 2013 (midday): Closing date for return of voting papers

Monday 16 December 2013  : Votes counted
