Board of Scrutiny: Notice of Bye-election

19 April 2004

The Vice-Chancellor gives notice of an election of a member of the Board of Scrutiny in class (c)(i), to serve until 30 September 2007 in place of Mr Mantas Adomenas, who has resigned his place on the Board. Class (c)(i) consists of members of the Regent House who have not attained the age of thirty-five years on 1 October following their election (subject to certain exclusions; see Statute A, VII, 4 (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 10)).

In order to be eligible, a candidate must be nominated on a paper sent to the Vice-Chancellor at the Old Schools so as to reach her not later than noon on Tuesday, 11 May 2004. The paper must contain (a) a statement signed by two members of the Regent House, nominating the candidate for election and (b) a statement signed by the candidate certifying that he or she consents to be so nominated. The candidate should also submit a curriculum vitae (see below).

The Vice-Chancellor would be obliged if nominations could be delivered direct to the Registrary's Secretary in the Old Schools during office hours. Nominations will be published as they are received. The complete list of nominations will be published in the Reporter on Wednesday, 19 May.

Regulation 3 of the regulations for the election of members of the Council (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 121) applies also to the Board of Scrutiny. Under this regulation each person nominated for election is required to send to the Registrary, not later than noon on Tuesday, 11 May, a statement of her or his curriculum vitae for distribution to members of the Regent House with the voting papers. It is suggested that such a statement should be of not more than 500 words in length, and that it should cover the following points:

The candidate's present position in the University.

Previous posts held, whether in Cambridge or in other universities or outside the university system, with dates.

A note of the candidate's particular interests within the field of University business.

Voting papers will be distributed, together with the statements provided by candidates, not later than Friday, 21 May. The last date for the return of voting papers will be Tuesday, 1 June.

Regulation 2 for the election of members of the Board of Scrutiny (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 123) provides that, if at the election insufficient nominations are received to fill all the places in either class (c)(i) or class (c)(ii), the Council shall appoint as many members as may be necessary.
