Exec election necessary

An election to fill four vacancies on the eight-man Executive is to be held in early April. The four vacancies are in the positions of Women's Vice-President, Secretary, Publications Officer and Sports Officer. Three of the vacancies were created by resignations and one position—that of Association Secretary—was unfilled following the 1969 elections.

Peter Zohrab, Publications Officer, and Roger Lawrence, Sports Officer, resigned towards the end of last year. The resignation of Sharyn Cederman, Women's Vice-President, was only received at the beginning of this month.

There were no nominations for the position of Secretary by the time nominations closed last year. Denis Phelps, one of the student representatives on the University Council, has since been co-opted to the position until the April election.

Colin Knox, Men's Vice-President, is to handle the Publications portfolio in the meantime. An interim appointment to the position on Sports Officer was not considered necessary.

With the Executive now comprising Margaret Bryson (President), Colin Knox, Gary Langford (Treasurer), Denis Phelps and Graeme Nesbitt (Cultural Affairs Officer), the bare constitutional quorum necessary for the continued functioning of the Executive is being maintained.

Applications for the position of Returning Officer have been called for and these will close on March 5. An appointment to the position will be made within a few days of the close of applications. At present, it seems likely that polling will be on April 1 and 2 and the result of the election may well be known in time for the Association's Annual General Meeting on or about April 2.
