Blues Trust AGM
Many people regard meetings, particularly Annual General Meetings (AGM), as boring. Thomas Sowell said, “People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.” So I feel I need to explain why we have an AGM and why people should come to it.
We have an AGM because our rules say we have to be accountable to our members and, at least once a year, hold a meeting where they can have their say. We have to hold elections for board members and report how we’ve spent the money we’ve received in membership fees and donations. We want fit and proper owners of our club, who will listen to the views of supporters. So we need to be a fit and proper supporters’ organisation that involves members in decision making.
Members should come to meet the board, ask questions and tell us what they think. Non-members who want to find out more about Blues Trust are welcome to attend but please be sure to register online; we can only accommodate a limited number of non-members.
Following the formal part of the meeting there will be a Question and Answer session with Tom Ross, talking about his autobiography The Game’s Gone. There’s no admission charge to the meeting, there will be a cash bar, and a chance for a chat with Tom and other fans about our club. The meeting is in the City Room at St Andrew’s on Wednesday, November 9th. The doors will open at 6.30 pm and the meeting will start at 7 pm. The formal part of the meeting should last about half an hour and the Q&A will finish about 9 pm.
