Sup­port­ers Co­op­er­a­tive hope to wel­come fresh im­pe­tus on board at the AGM

Stockport Express - - Sport - COUNTY SUP­PORT­ERS CO­OP­ER­A­TIVE COL­UMN IAN BROWN

THE Sup­port­ers Co­op­er­a­tive had a mem­bers meet­ing planned to con­tinue the con­sul­ta­tion process re­gard­ing the ul­ti­mate fo­cus as far as the Guardian Ac­count is con­cerned. Re­gret­tably this meet­ing, sched­uled for Thurs­day 14 Septem­ber at the Bungalow, has had to be can­celled, but ar­range­ments are in hand to re-sched­ule , and we will ad­vise as soon as pos­si­ble as to the new date.

Mean­while a meet­ing that most cer­tainly will go ahead as sched­uled, will be the Sup­port­ers Co­op­er­a­tive AGM set for Thurs­day 9 Novem­ber 2017 at the Bungalow Club on Hard­cas­tle Road.

As usual there will be board va­can­cies to fill, and we in­vite mem­bers to con­sider putting them­selves for­ward for elec­tion to the board, who will wel­come the in­put, help and ideas, pro­vided by fresh faces, as we at­tempt to best rep­re­sent the in­ter­ests of County Sup­port­ers.

The AGM is a piv­otal el­e­ment in our year, and cen­tral to our be­lief in the demo­cratic process.

In this re­spect, it is by no means un­usual to en­counter un­con­tested elec­tions at AGM time, and whilst this is un­der­stand­able to some ex­tent, when other strands in life’s rich tapestry beckon louder than the call to a de­bate at the Bung, it is not a healthy sit­u­a­tion.

The cur­rent board of the Sup­port­ers Co­op­er­a­tive have been busy and still have much they wish to do. To put ideas and plans into ac­tion re­quires en­ergy and wit - some­thing you dear reader I am guess­ing have in quan­tity.

Why not join us, nominate some­one, or get some­one to nominate

you! In this re­spect the fol­low­ing is the AGM Timetable:
