  • All signatories will need to provide their UCU membership number and email address. Incomplete details may void a nomination.
  • If it is necessary for nominees, proposers and seconders to submit separate forms where collation to a single form is not possible, this will be acceptable.
  • Nominations will be acknowledged by email as soon as possible after receipt.
