Members Meeting, 8th December – Club Ownership

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

At our recent AGM we shared plans for a series of informal members’ meetings, with the first to be held in late November. I’d like to firstly apologise for not meeting that timescale, and secondly extend an invitation to a *very* informal get-together before the Brechin game on Saturday, December 8th.

Membership Renewals

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

I’ve finally got round to getting the membership renewal process off and running with around 300 letters/forms posted out over the last week. We’ve got a new application form which asks for a bit more information and gives you the chance to volunteer if that’s something you’re interested in. The idea is to build a list of trust members who can help out every now and then, but  don’t have the time to commit to serving on the trust board. This should help us be more effective and target the right people when specific tasks come up.

Also anyone currently paying a monthly Standing Order (SO) doesn’t need to send a payment with their renewal, and if anyone currently not paying by SO wants to do so then they can print off a version here or we can send one out (which we will do for all renewing members).
