The Running of CUCA
CUCA is governed by its Constitution.
The Constitution came into force in its present form on 9th November 2012. It restructures the Committee and stipulates new, clear rules for elections. The 9th November amendments also introduced a new document, Election Rules and Regulations, which articulates acceptable conduct and its policing by the Returning Officers in elections.
Membership of CUCA is open to individuals who are members of Cambridge University.
The nominations form for elections to the Committee is here.
The President of CUCA is an honorary position and is currently held by Lord Howard. The picture below was taken in Michaelmas 2004 when Michael Howard, at that stage the Party leader, visited Cambridge to make a major policy announcement. Mr Howard last visited CUCA in Lent 2011 and gave a fascinating talk to well over a hundred CUCA members.
