The 2017 annual General Meeting (AGM) of The Graduate Union of The University of Melbourne Incorporated will be held on Thursday, 25th May. Prior to this AGM, the Association holds an election of Members to Council, the governing body of the Association.
Notice of this election was released to all Members Entitled to Vote, and included a call for nominations for election to Council which closed Thursday, 16th March, 2017. This date also marked the close of submissions from Members to propose Motions for Special Resolution at annual General Meeting and to apply for ballot papers.
As a result of the call for nominations published in the January/February newsletter and on the website of The Graduate Union, five valid nominations have been received for three vacancies. A poll will therefore be held, with voting closing at 4.00PM on Friday, 19th May, 2017.
A voting paper, a small envelope marked ‘Voting Paper’ and an outer reply paid return addressed envelope, in which the small envelope containing the voting paper is to be placed, are all enclosed with the Melbourne Graduate and May Newsletter posted to all members. If you have not received them by the end of April, please contact The Graduate Union office immediately.
Candidates are listed here, and on the voting paper, in the order in which names were determined by lot in the presence of witnesses:
The personal statements for each candidate may be read by clicking on the names (links) above. These statements have been standardised only by listing the surname first, followed by given names (where a candidate is commonly known by a name other than their given name this will be shown in brackets after the given name), the listing of degrees and diplomas and the inclusion of the names of the proposer and seconder of the candidate. Additional web material, if provided, is shown below the statements.
An asterisk* indicates a retiring Council Member seeking re-election.
The three members elected in this poll will have terms expiring in May 2020.
