The Academic Friends of Israel
6th February 2007
For those of you who are members of the University and College Union [UCU], you will be receiving within the next few days through the post ballot papers for the posts of UCU trustees, general secretary, officer and national executive committee positions. You will have up until 7 March 2007 to return your ballot paper.
Within the next 10 days we will be sending out an AFI digest advising you on candidates' positions on Israel and the academic boycott.
Please do not return your papers until you have read our advice.
We have to use our vote wisely as there will be upwards of 100 names on the ballot papers. Voting will be by single transferable vote which means members can number their ballot papers in the order of their preferred candidates.
