Standing for, and electing the Board of the new supporters organisation

Aside from the Chair and Vice Chair, the Board of the new supporters organisation will ordinarily be elected by and from the National Council (in the first year, it is anticipated that three one-year places will be taken from the current Interim Board).

We have asked applicants for the National Council positions to inform us of their intention (or not) of standing for the Board if they are successful in being elected to the National Council. Although the voting is for National Council members only and these people won’t be confirmed until the 22nd in the interests of transparency you can see the statements of people who intend to stand for the Board (if eligible) at this link. We will update the list of statements up until 5pm on Wednesday 21st November.

Please note as voted by the members of the FSF and SD at the AGM one place on the Board will be held for a candidate from each of the Fans for Diversity and supporter-owned clubs National Council members.
