I cant believe that Charlie didn't attend. He appeared to be the person in the know and a cert to be elected.

Of course you can, because you know quite well I'm not a CYJ member but, just as I'm not a member of any political party whilst still commenting and usually criticising the performamce of them all because of their effect on the country, I similarly feel perfectly entitled to comment on CJT and its effect on the club.

Unless you have written to the organisation resigning your membership, or received a renewal to which you did not respond (prior to this year) then you are member....as I have explained before.

That, of course, does not mean it is compulsory for you to have attended the AGM....but it does mean it was a choice not to have done so.

Being aware that there are people who may be great candidates for the CJT Board, but who might be put off by the current situation or from not knowing/understanding exactly what's involved....would anyone be interested in a get together/Q&A with previous (and existing if the wished) board members so they can get a better idea of things?

Yes.  I think that would be very helpful.  It must be clear to anyone who has read through the various recent threads on CJT that significant work is necessary to get CJT functioning at a level where the Board can be seen as legitimately representing the supporters and where it would be able to defend any challenge of legitimacy in exercising its 10% voting right on the club's Board if there was ever a need.  Beyond that, there is much that a Supporters' Society  could be doing routinely in working with the club in the mutual interest of the supporters and club. 

There are 10 places on the Board for elected members and for some considerable time the Board has had substantially less than that. Clearly that impacts on what can be achieved. The more people who are prepared to serve on the Board the more there is that can be done.  I am certainly prepared to consider putting my name forward but | don't want to find myself in a position where nobody else new comes forward.  Were that to happen, it is unlikely I would be able to make any meaningful difference and I don't want to feel I am wasting my time.  There must be others who feel the same way.  Meeting to discuss how we feel and to learn a bit more about what is involved might well provide enough mutual support and encouragement to  allow sufficient people to put themselves forward to make a real difference.

If,  after learning a bit more about it, people decide that they don't want to stand for the Board after all, then at least they may be encouraged to provide some help and support in an unofficial capacity instead.  I would imagine those on the Board will be grateful for all the help they can get.  The more people who are willing to help out in some capacity or other, the easier it is for people to volunteer without feeling that everything is going to be dumped on them if they put themselves forward.

Holding a pre-Election forum to present the perceptions from current Board members (preferably ones also seeking re-election) and open questions sounds like a very good idea. If I lived closer then that is what I would be seeking. However DD - put your name forward and if there is not sufficient interest then pull out - with understandable reason. The thing that got me is that certain individuals have been butting in and putting people off with their tainted views with NO intention whatsoever of helping out.
