We need to follow the new official supporters club rules set forth by Liverpool FC. A new committee must be elected, democratically by LFC Vancouver members, and an AGM (Annual General Meeting) must be held. The election and AGM will take place the morning of Saturday, September 12th, 2015, when we play Manchester United at 9:30am.
According to the rules, our committee must include the following positions: Chairman (formerly known as President), Treasurer and Secretary. To be eligible for a role on the committee Liverpool FC requires you to hold a current Liverpool FC Official Membership. If you wish to be considered for one of these roles but do not currently have a membership or your membership has lapsed you can purchase / renew by September 5th.
If you want to be considered for any position or you wish to nominate someone for a role on the committee please send an email to: email@example.com.
Damon of the Donnelly Group will be arbitrating the election and no member of LFC Vancouver will be influencing the vote. All entries must be submitted by 6:00pm on September 5th.
Prior to the commencement of and during the game on September 12th the Management of The Butcher and Bullock will hand out voting slips. Votes must be placed by 11:00am as they will be tallied at the end of the game. The new committee will be announced immediately.
The AGM, which all members of the club are invited to participate in, will be held after the new committee has been announced. Questions or feedback on all matters related to LFC Vancouver or The Butcher and Bullock are welcome.
The duties of all 3 roles are organic and can change or evolve at any time. The committee formed on September 12th can discuss allocation of duties at that time.
At the time of writing we may not have a committee on September 12 because we have only had 2 people nominate themselves as secretary and treasurer. We do not have anyone being nominated for the role of Chairman. If people do not come forward then I will continue on temporarily to ensure that anything important gets done and we will start this process again a month later as a committee has to be elected by the members and in order for there to be a vote we need at least 2 people being nominated for each person.
