How many co-oppers have applied for co-option and when will we find out who’s been co-opted?

According to Ux it’s a fact. And I’ve no reason to doubt him, he’s pretty straight even if he is being unusually evasive on this thread.


Am I? Possibly, I dunno. About what in particular? I'm probably not quite as dogmatic about certain things, but there are probably many reasons for that. I wouldn't last a day in the DVLA would I!

Assuming the rules are applied without amendment, yes. If not, no. I'd argue for an amendment, although I'm not yet convinced on the merits of making it retrospective.


OK clear now.

I took the statement to read the board had already discussed and the decision was to implement the new rules at the AGM

Maybe I'm not making myself clear.

The answers should be there if they have sight of the new rules.


Everyone does.. https://supporters-direct.org/rules-and-policies-1

But like I say, they can be varied as required.

That’s a decision for members, not the board.

Either way it's the plan, but it's all irrelevant as it's up to the members to agree or not. If not, then 2001 applies and I'm not entirely sure what happens then.

And of course there’s the intervening period during which the current rules still apply.

Everything is now clear.

When new SD new rules were quoted I thought there was a further update coming than the ones in July 2012

Indeed. Which is why the Trust consulted SD for the appropriate interim process.

I’m genuinely surprised that the advice from SD was to ignore the rules that currently govern the Trust.

Will it be a strong recommendation to go with the 2012 rules before a vote

Surely, if the reason the trust wanted to adopt the new model rules was because there was a lack of new applications, the fact that 14 people have now applied for 4 positions means that any board member who has served 12 years should now gracefully stand aside?

The new applicants will be deemed unsuitable is my guess.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall when they discuss The Res, application too, can you imagine it? I know Phil and Ux have asked him to stand many times on here, but behind closed doors with the other members?

These are the 2012 rules but you've referred previously to the 2016 rules - so are you able to provide a link to those please, the ones you propose to adopt ?

Also, what will be the process for proposing amendment to those rules ?

Proud to have been one of the 231

At least put themselves up for re-election.

As in most things in life I want the best balance on the board that reflects not only the need of the board but a true reflection of the fanbase

Are they? Are you sure? That's SDs website.

It'd be a good idea to publish the proposed rules beforehand. I'll suggest it.

WHAT! You don't see the that the trust are adopting the new rules because of a lack of new applicants, and the fact that there are now 14 new applicants for 4 positions is not related! Jesus Christ!

Nah. The old ones are majorly outdated, and it's not the first time the Trust have planned to update model rules as per Supporters Direct updates.
