Bradford City Supporters' Trust 2018 AGM
Thank you to all who took the time on a cold Monday night to attend our annual Annual General Meeting last week, 10th December 2018. The AGM presented a number of regular business items which must be covered in order to meet our regulatory obligations.
A copy of the Meeting Minutes are available upon request for the reference of you, our members.
Members will have recieved an email of tthis with the attachment.
Whilst a number of motions were voted upon and agreed in an advisory capacity, Trust Rules say that '20' is the magic number for our AGM to be quorate, as we fell below that we must sign off the recommendations made at the AGM at the earliest possible opportunity.
This will therefore take place prior to the upcoming home game versus Scunthorpe from 1pm to 1-30pm on Saturday 22nd December 2018 at the Midland Hotel, in accordance with Trust Rules and to enable our statutory Financial Conduct Authority Return to be made.
We welcome any City fan wishing to attend and we would be grateful for your intention in advance, whilst only BCST members remain eligible to vote.
If you would like to have a drink with us afterwards we will move to the bar...
Bradford City Supporters' Trust Open Meeting
Proceeding our AGM on 10th December 2018, BCST also provided opportunity for Supporters and Members to join us in person to discuss, in further detail, what has been an unprecedented period in recent history for us all as City fans and our Club.
We welcomed Special Guest Speakers Deborah Dilworth (Supporters' Direct Network Manager to the Premier League and Football League) and Roger Ellis of the Sky Blues Trust (Coventry City), who provided an invaluable insight into the parallels and experiences which could be drawn from similar challenging circumstances for fans & Trust's at other Club's.
Whilst we look to the future with positivity, all present took a great deal from examples of encouraging not just the important atmosphere of "structured dialogue" but engagement with you, BCST members, as we enter a new Chapter for our Club and endeavor to emerge stronger for the experiences of the last 12 months.
As part of this, we would continue to actively encourage BCST members who may be interested in joining the Trust Board to get in touch, which will enable us to reach out further - whether you have an interest in Social Events, Media, Community Initiatives or Business with City at heart we would be very pleased to hear from you.
As always a tough run of fixtures lies ahead, but a run of fixtures we can all look forward to over the festive period - the main reason we all follow our Club, to enjoy watching our team with fellow fans, friends and family; especially at this time of year.
For those unable to attend our short meeting on Saturday may we take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year.
Yours in City,
Bradford City Supporters' Trust Board
