The responses we have received to our Community Shares Survey indicate that, if the club were to get new owners, Birmingham City supporters would want the ownership to involve supporters in some way. And many would be prepared to invest in Community Shares.
However, we need more responses, to help us decide whether or not this idea is worth pursuing. A community shares scheme can only succeed if it has the backing of a significant number of Blues supporters so we need to get an idea of how many support the idea. If you haven’t already completed a survey, please click here and complete it now.
We will also be distributing surveys before the home game with Blackburn on Monday 21st April. If you can help with their distribution please contact Margaret Decker at firstname.lastname@example.orgRead More
The Secretary of Blues Trust is unable to continue in the role due to other commitments so we need to appoint a new one.
The role of Secretary involves administrative tasks such as arranging meetings, taking minutes, dealing with correspondence and ensuring that records are kept up to date. These records are to include a register of members with dates at which they became members or ceased to be members. The Secretary is also responsible for keeping a list of Board members. Some tasks may be delegated but the Secretary is responsible for overseeing them.
The Secretary should have a commitment to the values of the Trust and to attend meetings. It is desirable that he/she will have had some experience in serving as a secretary to a board or committee.
