Elections for DFCSG board soon

Elections for DFCSG board soon

Seven places available on DFCSG board

 

Nominations for Directors of Darlington FC Supporters Group
 
In accordance with the constitution of Darlington FC Supporters Group (DFCSG), one third of the board members elected in 2015 are required to retire at the Annual General Meeting (although they are entitled to seek re-election should they so wish). The last of the 2015 board that are required to stand down and seek re-election are Rob Duncan, Glen Bowes and Neil Raper. In addition, during the year Tony Waters had to stand down due to work commitments. Also John Bell and Terry Black have decided to stand down as has Dave Collinge, who wishes to devote his full attention to his role as Supporters’ Liaison Officer.
 
The constitution of DFCSG makes provision for a board of up to twelve directors and therefore there will be vacancies for up to seven additional board members to be elected at the next AGM (this has been provisionally set for 25th October but will be subject to formal notification in due course).
 
With the continual need to develop the infrastructure at Blackwell Meadows and to re-connect the Club with the town, this an important time for Darlington Football Club and DFCSG. Therefore, if you feel you have the necessary skills to make a positive contribution to the operation and development of DFCSG in our role as majority shareholder of Darlington Football Club, then we would very much like to hear from you. Ideally individuals would be able to devote no less than 10 hours per month, are able to develop ideas that would benefit both the Group and the Football Club and are able to work under their own steam, or as part of a group to deliver and report back at the monthly board meetings. Representatives from the Group liaise regularly with the Football Club, so by being a DFCSG board member you can really influence the direction of the Club.
 
Anyone wishing to put themselves forward as a Director of DFCSG would need to submit their details on the attached nomination form and return to the address below or email to membership@darlingtonfc.org to be received by Friday 28th September 2018 at the latest. The pdf form is editable but to return it by email you would need to print out the completed form, have it signed by your nominators and then email the scanned signed form. If there are more than seven nominations there will be a ballot at the Annual General Meeting.
 
If you wish to know more about what the role entails please contact me at chris.stockdale@dfcsg.co.uk or come and talk to us at the fans table at the next home match.                                                                                                                                            
​Yours sincerely,​
