Reminder – Trust Board Nomination Process Underway

We wanted to remind you that the Glovers Trust are currently looking for nominations from adult members interested in serving on the Trust Board from October 2018. This is our third year of operation and we are looking for up to 8 new Board members who wish to take an active role in developing the Trust and influencing our relationship with YTFC. Your support is vital in sustaining a successful Trust that can challenge and support the Club – if you have an opinion then this is your chance to do something about it.

If you are interested then you will firstly need ensure that you have renewed your Trust membership, which expired on or before June 30th 2018. Renewing is simple and can be completed online by visiting the Trust website here, or if you would rather visit us in person, we have a renewed presence at Huish Park for the 2018/19 season, as well as maintaining our slot at the Arrow public house on home match days. For those of a more traditional nature, there is also a postal option; visit our website here for more details.

Once you have confirmed that your 2018/19 membership is in place, simply complete the Trust Board nomination form and return by Friday the 14th of September. Candidates must be nominated by two other adult Trust members, and complete a statement outlining why they want to get involved with the Board. Eligible forms will be included in our Election manifesto to be sent to all members, who will then vote for their preferred candidates. Results will be announced at our third AGM to be held in Yeovil on Wednesday 17th October (venue TBC).

Full details of this process can be found in polices 7, 8 and 9 here and should be fully read and understood ahead of nominating but a summary is as follows:

  • Friday 24th August – The nomination form is published online here. Trust members wishing to stand for election must submit a form which must include nominations from 2 Trust members along with a manifesto of no more than 450 words.
  • Friday 14th September – Deadline for completed nominations. All nomination forms must be received by the Trust Secretary, either by email (secretary@glovers-trust.co.uk) or post (FAO Trust Secretary, Glovers Trust, PO BOX 5240, Yeovil Somerset, BA20 9FR) by the end of the day and will not be accepted after this date.
  • Friday 21st September – Members will receive voting packs containing manifestos of those standing for nomination.
  • Friday 12th October – Deadline for completed votes to be received by the Trust Secretary. Votes will not be accepted after this date.
  • Wednesday 17th October – Glovers Trust AGM takes place and election results are announced.

Whilst the Trust Board endeavour to act on the views and beliefs of our members, we will not always get things right and fully respect the views of our former members who have decided against renewing for now. We’d love to hear from you as to why you have taken this decision and what we could do to entice you back – it’s a team game after all!
