Brock University’s Board of Trustees is seeking a new permanent staff representative to serve a three-year term on the Board.
The general bylaws of the Board of Trustees specify that the Board shall include three permanent staff members, elected by the permanent staff of the University, serving staggered three-year terms. As of July 1, 2014, there will be one permanent staff vacancy on the Board. The University Secretariat will hold elections in May to select one representative from the permanent staff for a three-year term commencing July 1, 2014.
Any permanent staff member, who is not a manager reporting directly to the president or a vice-president, is eligible to stand in the election. Nomination forms are available on the University Secretariat election website. The nomination form must be signed by at least three members of the permanent staff and the nominee. You may return the nomination form in person, by email, or by fax to 905-688-9754, no later than 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 5. The Office of the University Secretariat is located in ST1107.
The election will be done by electronic voting, with the exception of those without an active email address, who will receive a paper ballot. Voting will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, May 12 and will close at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, May 23.
All eligible voters will receive an email to their Brock account with a link to a secure electronic ballot. Those without an active email account will receive a paper ballot which must be returned to the Office of the University Secretariat. Each voter may vote for one candidate as there is only one vacancy. The candidate leading the poll will be elected to the three-year term.
Please contact Chabriol Colebatch, interim secretary to the University (x3335), for further information.
