Under the Faculty Senate rules, formal notification to members may be accomplished by publication in Almanac. The following is published under that rule.

 To:  Members of the Faculty Senate
From:   John C. Keene, Chair
Subject:   Nomination for Chair-elect 2000-2001

The 1998-1999 Senate Nominating Committee was reconvened to fill a vacancy in the position of Chair-elect for 2000-2001.

1. In accordance with the Faculty Senate Rules, official notice is given of the Senate Nominating Committee's nominee. The nominee, who has indicated his willingness to serve, is:

Chair-elect: David B. Hackney, Professor of Radiology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania

2. Again in accord with the Senate Rules you are invited to submit "additional nominations, which shall be accomplished via petitions containing at least twenty-five valid names and the signed approval of the candidate. All such petitions must be received no later than fourteen days subsequent to the circulation of the nominee of the Nominating Committee. Nominations will automatically be closed fourteen days after circulation of the slate of the Nominating Committee." Pursuant to this provision, petitions must be received by mail at the Faculty Senate, Box 12 College Hall/6303, or by hand at the Faculty Senate Office, 109 Duhring Wing by 5 p.m., Tuesday, January 11, 2000. (Due to the University holiday the week of December 27, the deadline is extended two weeks.)

3. Under the same provision of the Senate Rules, if no additional nominations are received, the candidate nominated by the Nominating Committee will be declared elected. Should additional nominations be received, an election will thereafter be held by mail ballot.
