The 2024 CULA AGM will take place on Tuesday 12th March from 7.45pm, in the Bowett Room at Queens’ College.

Election information and rules

  • The Returning Officers for the election are: Emma Munday, the outgoing Chair, and Archie McCann, the outgoing Secretary.
  • The 2024-25 Committee will be elected at this AGM.
  • This election will use a single transferable vote method, with a re-open nominations option using an electronic voting method built by our previous Chair, Joshan Parmar. You will need an internet-enabled (there is WiFi) electronic device, such as a smartphone or laptop, in order to vote.
  • Absentee ballots can be requested from the Returning Officers no later than 24 hours before the meeting. Once you have registered your desire for an absentee ballot you will need to indicate your intended votes for each position after the list of candidates is released and no later than the start of the AGM. There will be no proxy votes available in this election. 
  • All life members are eligible to vote in these elections provided they are a member of the Association (though not necessarily of the Party) before the Statement of Persons Nominated is released.
  • Any violation of UK electoral law is not permitted and other unwanted behaviours not covered by UK law will be dealt with at the discretion of the Returning Officers. 


Information for candidates

  • Members will be allowed to stand for up to three committee positions, in descending order (the order of precedence will be explained below). If a candidate is elected to one before we have come to the other elections then they will be eliminated as a candidate for those later positions.
  • Candidates may write manifestos (which should be emailed to the Returning Officers alongside their announcement of their candidacy), but manifestos are only compulsory for candidates for the Chair. Manifestos must not run to more than one side of A4, and a plain-text version should also be provided.
  • At the AGM there will be a hustings in which candidates should make a brief statement of 1 to 2 minutes to explain their reasons for standing and their aims for their time in the role. Exact speaking time allocations will be decided by the ROs.

The order of precedence of positions is as follows:

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Women’s/Non-Binary Officer
  • Campaigns Officer
  • Social Events Officer
  • Speaker Events Officer
  • Membership Development and Alumni Officer
  • Communications Officer

Each position is held for one year, i.e. until the AGM 2025. The responsibilities of these positions are in an attached standing orders document, linked above, but if you have any questions about these roles then you are welcome to make contact with those who currently hold them. Who holds which roles is information available on the CULA website, under “Committee”.
