22 May 2009

No nominations have been received for members in classes (c) and (d) of the Nominating Committee to nominate External Members of the Council for the election announced in the Reporter, p. 658. Under the regulations for the election of such members a further election is to be held until the vacancies are filled (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 116).

The Vice-Chancellor accordingly gives notice of an election of members of the Committee as follows, to serve for four years from 1 October 2009:

(i) one member in class (c);
(ii) two members in class (d).

Members in classes (c) and (d) comprise:

(c) two members elected by the Regent House from among those who at the time of election are current members of Council in classes (a), (b), and (c);
(d) four members of the Senate elected by the Regent House.

No person may be a member of the Committee in class (d) who is a member of the Council or who holds any of the University offices of Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Registrary, or Director or Deputy Director in the University Offices.

In order to be eligible a candidate for election 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 Friday, 12 June. 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 provide a curriculum vitae by the same date (see below).

The Vice-Chancellor would be obliged if nominations could be delivered to the Registrary 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, 17 June.

In accordance with the regulations governing the election, each person nominated for election is required to send to the Registrary, not later than noon on Friday, 12 June, 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 might cover the following points:

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 and experience that he or she might bring to the Council.

The election will be conducted by postal ballot, under the Single Transferable Vote regulations. Voting papers will be distributed, together with the statements provided by candidates, on or before Monday, 29 June. The last date for the return of voting papers will be Tuesday, 14 July.

The Vice-Chancellor has appointed the Administrative Secretary as Deputy Presiding Officer.
