As the Marketing Director of Donnelly Group and the liaison to LFC Vancouver and the Butcher & Bullock, I have been selected to arbitrate the new election process and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) for LFC Vancouver this season.
As you may or may not know, official recognition of a supporters club requires clubs to adhere to a set of transparency and organizational protocols, including an elected committee, and an annual AGM.
In the past the club has held a loose adherence to these policies, but moving forward we will begin to align ourselves with the official rules.
In order to be eligible to vote, you must have a paid membership to LFC Vancouver for the 2015/2016 season. Anyone who attended the Neil Mellor night had this membership included in their ticket purchase. For anyone else, the cost is $10 and membership can be purchased from the LFC Vancouver online store via PayPal, or from Committee members at the Butcher and Bullock pub.
Here are the KEY POINTS you need to know as an eligible, voting member:
(1) If you wish to be part of the committee you must be nominated by two members in good standing, you may nominate yourself as one vote. Nomination MUST be sent to email@example.com. If you have sent in a nomination and HAVE NOT received confirmation from me, please forward again immediately.
(2) Voting will take place at the AGM – being help on September 12th immediately following the LFC match v Manchester United – approx 11:45am.
(3) At the AGM, nominated parties will be announced, and will have an opportunity to speak about their contribution, then ballots will be issued and cast. These ballots will be counted by members of the Butcher & Bullock staff, and posted on the LFC website with corresponding minutes.
(4) If you are unable to attend the AGM, you may vote in absentia. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, you will be notified of the candidates in conjunction with the announcement at the AGM, and you will have 5 days to submit your vote to me via email – votes must be received by the end of the day on Wednesday 16th September 2015.
The winners will be announced as soon as all of the pre-arranged absentee ballots have been counted – this may happen before the 5 day time limit, if all ballots have been received.
Any questions, please email me directly.
