ICT Supporters Trust : Board Nominations

Recommended Posts

ICT SUPPORTERS SOCIETY LTD - BOARD NOMINATIONS & ELECTIONS

The ICT Supporters Society Ltd, in accordance with its Rules, is seeking nominations for board members to be elected at the upcoming Annual General Meeting on 6th December 2018.

There are currently 8 board members on the society board however, we will be looking to increase that to the maximum permissible level of 10. Numbers were previously limited by the level of valid nominations received and not by any decision of the Society.

If there are more candidates than places available on the Society Board, details of the ballot process will be issued along with ballot papers and copies of candidates' election manifesto. If there are as many or fewer candidates than there are places, an affirmative ballot shall be held at the AGM. Further details can be found in the Election Policy document.

People willing to contribute and serve on the Board must

  • Be a fully paid-up member of the Society,
  • Be nominated by two fully paid-up members of the Society,
  • An election nomination form (attached) must be completed and returned to the Society Secretary no later than noon on 6th November 2018.

A link to the election policy, rules and standing orders for general meetings can be found through the 'Documents' section of our website at https://ict.supporterstrust.org. Any queries should be emailed to [email protected]ict.supporterstrust.org in the first instance.

Regards
ICT Supporters Society Board

There will be more than 2 spaces to be filled.

The current board has 2 co-opted members who, if they wish to continue, will need stand for election.  There is also a requirement for one-third of the elected board to step down...they too can stand for re-election if they so wish.  The exact number of spaces will be advised when the official AGM notice, agenda etc are issued next month.

We would be delighted to have enough members interested in serving on the board to bring it to the maximum permitted number...in fact, more than, in order to generate the need for a full election.  I'm sure you're familiar with the saying about volunteers and their worth compared to hard-pressed men (or women).

A wee bump to remind people that their nominations need to be submitted before noon on the 6th November 👍

With the deadline for nominations just 4 days away, I thought it might be an idea to give a brief view on where the Supporters Trust is at and see if anyone has any questions on stuff that's maybe holding them back from getting involved; so here we go...

Earlier in the year, months of chat and discontent over the Supporters Trust came to a head and resulted in a push for a Special General Meeting and changes to the Board sitting therein.  At that time there were people who indicated that it was an organisation that they might have considered getting involved with if not for the internal challenges that would exist for whoever stepped up at the time.

  • Thanks to the hard work and diligence of those who did step up, the organisation now finds itself in a far better place....
  • Internal administrative and procedural issues have been rectified.
  • For the first time in what looks like many, many years there's a members list which we have some confidence in and which has allowed us to meet the obligation of better communicating with the members/fans.
  • Dialogue has been opened up with the club and we are represented on the ICT 25th Year Celebrations Committee…with the ICT Supporters Trust Hall of Fame being included on the calendar of events (date tbc).  For those of you who don’t know about the Hall of Fame, you can get more info here : https://caleythistleonline.com/index.html/archives/news-archive/news-2007-08/hall-of-fame-2007-awards-r359/
  • We got off to a bit of a sticky start on the SLO conversation, but there's now a commitment from the club to regularly review and grow that role.  The first review is due to take place during November 2018 and we welcome the proactive approach now being taken in this area.

It is the shared hope of the ICT Supporters Trust Board that at least some of those who previously saw the above as a barrier to putting themselves forward for the board will now be more comfortable in doing so.

Fresh faces bring fresh ideas, fresh energy and a wider focus to any organisation.  We all have an opportunity to ensure the ICT Supporters Trust never again becomes stale and unable to meet the purposes for which it exists.  That can be from supporting the work of those involved directly with the society or, and this is where we really need your help, by stepping forward and being one of those people joining the board.

Applications for board nominations are being accepted up until midday on 6th November and you can find the information and forms at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PyhLlLxTlBgiMM18U8qJE18CVHQEzD0m : alternatively, drop us an email to [email protected]ict.supporterstrust.org and someone will assist you from there.

We will also have board members on hand at the Stadium Sports Bar (Pie and Pint for a fiver from 12pm) before this weekend's Highland Derby.  Come bring us your forms, ask us some questions, sign up for the tenpin bowling night at the end of the month….or just for a bit of idle chit chat!

I could finish with any one of a dozen inspirational, cliched call to arms type lines, but it boils down to this….

The ICT Supporters Trust exists to give fans the opportunity for a strong collective voice.

  • If you want that voice to exist, then support it.
  • If you want to be part of that voice, then join it.
  • If you want to help drive that voice, then get your board nomination submitted....NOW!!

Thank You
