Call for nominations

The University Museums Group AGM is taking place on the afternoon of Wednesday, 23 September, as part of the UMG’s 2015 conference: Where Science and Society Meet on 23-24th September at Durham University.

At the AGM, one committee member will be standing down or two will be standing for re-election, and we will be holding elections to fill these vacancies.  We are seeking committee members with a range of experience and skills (such as event organisation, use of social media, PR and advocacy), who are prepared to play an active role in supporting the UMG’s work.

If you would like to be considered – or to nominate another member – for one of these vacancies, you are invited to put forward your nomination to Tonya Nelson, Secretary of the University Museums Group Committee.

Each nomination must include, in a single word document sent as an email attachment:

  • The name of the person being nominated and the member organisation they represent
  • The name of their proposer and his/her member organisation
  • The name of a seconder and his/her member organisation
  • A 250 word statement by the nominee, telling us about their experience and skills and what they will bring to the UMG Committee.

The above information will be circulated to UMG members with the AGM papers.

In the event of there being more nominees than vacancies, an election will be held by ballot at the AGM.  Member organisations who are unable to send a representative to the AGM will be able to nominate a representative of another member organisation or a committee member

Nominations for Committee membership should be emailed to Tonya Nelson at tonya.nelson@ucl.ac.uk by 12 noon on 21 September.
