Community Ownership / Members Meeting

Attempts to contact Jimmy Miller have been continuing without success – try again to get further than his secretary before the members meeting (CM by phone, GH to contact him in writing if this is still unsuccessful)

Items to cover in the members meeting:

  • Re-establish principles of the Trust in general and the Reclaim The Rovers campaign
  • Lay out sequence of events behind the Jimmy Miller deal and our understanding of the current picture
  • Describe the next steps for the Loan Notes Fund – loan note holders will decide what happens to this fund
  • Thank the fund raisers! Particularly Allan Traynor for his work on the fanzine
  • Ask for support from the membership to continue with the campaign
  • Stress that we’re ready for the next crisis – we expect the annual cash-flow shortfall to happen again next season, and we expect the RRFC board to come calling for help
  • We understand RRFC’s finances better than anyone else – we use spreadsheets and business plans



Date of Next Meeting

Monday 9 May 2005 – 7.30pm @ Novar Bar
