What responsibilities do the Trusts board members have? How are they appointed?
All board members, including a maximum of two members without portfolio, are democratically elected by the Trust’s membership. Members (aged 18 and over) may vote in person, or by proxy, at the annual elections. Bristol City Supporters Trust has ten board members. All members of the Trust are eligible to stand for a position on the board. The positions are: Chair, Vice Chair, Fans Representation Officer, Fundraising Officer, Community Officer, Communications Officer, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, and two Members Without Portfolio. Under the constitution, different board positions are put up for election at each Annual General Meeting. Board members may stand again, or be challenged by other Trust members. If a board position becomes vacant then the Trust board may co-opt someone onto the board until the next AGM. Formal responsibilities of board members are to observe the Trust’s constitution and run a well- ordered company. Statutory responsibilities are to get rule changes approve
