Swans trust board elections. 17:27 - May 18 with 4821 viewsexiledclaseboy

As it says on the tin. Have a go. You know you want to. It’s good fun. Honest. And you’ll get a say in choosing the new manager.*

I’m conscious that this may have been lost in the shuffle of more important news this evening. So... bump.

And here’s the link to the form.

It says you have to post the form back but scanned forms returned via email were accepted last year so I assume they will be this. On account of it being 2019 and all that.

It's the loss of the opportunity to pick the new manager that has put me off.

It was brilliant as well. We sat all the candidates down and grilled them all mercilessly about mediation, raffles, ten pin bowling and their thoughts on the trust presence in the directors’ box. It was Cooper’s insistence that “I wouldn’t sit in any directors’ box with that bunch of jack f*ckers” that got him the gig.*












*again and just in case cos you never know on here, none of this actually happened.

Thanks ECB manager interviews sound a hoot

Has there been an email to members about the elections as i do not recall seeing it

I recall one mentioning Nigel was leaving - has a replacement been found for that position yet?

Any news on the imminent ballot re legal action?

Thanks

Yes, there have been a couple of emails about the elections I think.

Nigel is leaving and work to identify his replacement is ongoing.

The ballot on next steps in the legal process is very close now. Hopefully the next week or two. There’s a meeting next week to hopefully finalise the accompanying documentation.

I've recently moved house. Who do I contact to ensure my current address is on the database so I get the voting forms when they materialise?

In a different world maybe someone would get elected that hasn't got experience in a certain professional field, someone who would be prepared to stick thier head above the parapet and ruffle a few feathers and not worry about upsetting the owners.... in a different world

You might think I've forgotten, but one day, when you least expect it, my time will come.

Somebody like myself wouldn't sit very well with the likes of previous trust members, I jump into nobody's pocket 👍

But from what you described in your first post, you seem just the sort of person needed. Why not put your money where your mouth is, instead of waiting for others?

Perhaps I will, I trust (sic) I could count on your vote?

Depends on what you would bring to the role. I would judge you the same as all the others.

I'd bring my voice, not a PhD or a background in finance, just a regular fans opinion... hows that for a CV 👍

Aren't the PhD and background in finance regular fans who have a voice then? Surely you can see they bring more to the table than you?

So basically you are admitting unless you have a PhD or a professional background don't bother? What about 40 years of doing the hard yards up and down the country and abroad... you can keep your table mate and let the owners continue to laugh from the other side of the pond 👍

No. I'm saying like any position on a committee, you need the best people. Just being a fan doesn't cut it these days, unfortunately for you. Imagine if we had a boardroom of fans like you? We'd be in a far bigger mess than we are now. We need experts in different fields who have a bit of nous to combat the skulduggery of board members of the past.

"A boardroom of fans like you" ... lol
That patronising attitude towards the regular fans is exactly why the Trust is an irrelevance to the Americans 👍 keep up the good work (sic)

One simple way of sorting is to put yourself forward. See how you get on. I'll look forward to reading your "CV".
