Items for 5, in writing and bearing the signature of at least two alumni, may be sent to the President, Mrs Veronica Lowe (via the Development Office), to reach her by a minimum of 14 days before the notified date of the AGM. Any nominations for Committee membership may also be submitted by that time (see further information below).
This meeting will take place in Maplethorpe Hall in College, and will be livestreamed to Zoom. To register to attend either in person or online, please fill in the booking form below by 10 November 2023. If you would like to book a second ticket for another St Hugh’s member, please email the Development Team. Joining details will be sent out to all those who have registered on the day before the event.
The event is free, but we ask you to consider making a donation to the College’s Discretionary Fund when you book your ticket. Gifts to the Discretionary Fund will be directed towards the College’s current area of greatest need. This fund may, among other things, be used to purchase new library books, to cover expenses for research trips, or to renovate student accommodation.
Nominations for the St Hugh’s Alumni Association posts of President, Vice President and Association Chronicle Editor must be received by the current President on behalf of the Association Committee by 4pm on 1 November 2023. These can be submitted to her via the Development Office. If more than one nomination for a post is received, further details will be shared on the process to be adopted for election at the AGM.
As the three posts are the sole Officers of the Association by virtue of the 2021 Constitution, there is an expectation that nominated candidates will have served at least one year as a member of the Committee. The next Committee member election is at the 2024 AGM. However, the Association welcomes new Committee members (including those who matriculated within the last 10 or 20 years, or who represent regional or special interest groups), and these can be co-opted at any time.

The Association works alongside the St Hugh’s Development Team to promote continuing contact amongst alumni and with the College, drawing on a shared experience of friendship and scholarly adventure first encountered as students at St Hugh’s.
