The next City Fans United meeting will take place in the Blues Bar, at the Swansway Chester Stadium, on Thursday 15th November.
The meeting that will get underway at 7.30pm, is an informal meeting and so is open to non-members as well as current members.
It’s an ideal opportunity to come and hear from the CFU board on latest developments, as well as hopefully hearing from joint managers Bern & Jonno.
You can also sign up to CFU membership on the night too, with the membership package an unbeatable £12 per year at present.
The intention is also to stream the meeting on our CFU You Tube channel, on the evening itself.
The City Fans United Annual General Meeting took place last Thursday at the Swansway Chester Stadium, inside a packed Blues Bar.
On the night, Calvin Hughes and Jeff Banks, both of whom stood for election to the board saw their applications ratified by the members who had voted either by proxy or on the night itself. Both will now commence a minimum three year term on the board of directors of CFU.
Laurence Kirby, who stood down as a director of the board on the night, presented his financial report to the audience both in the room and watching online.
Laurence confirmed that CFU had made a £45k loss in the financial year June 2017-May 2018 but that prospects of a brighter future were indeed in place following some fantastic fundraising by volunteers since January 2018. Laurence also indicated that he would be prepared to maintain his financial reporting to the board in the interim whilst a permanent replacement is sought in due course, which the board have wholeheartedly thanked Laurence for.
The Chair of CFU, David Harrington-Wright, also gave a detailed report on the year itself too, and fielded questions from the audience relating to the club’s current financial position, and also with regards to the water damage to the Stadium too, even though this was experienced after the previous financial year had ended.
Minutes of the meeting will be published shortly on the CFU website.
Thanks to everyone that attended on the night, and we look forward to keeping the membership updated with the progress made as we go through the next financial period, June 2018-May 2019.
We would like to remind CFU members that it is the Annual General Meeting this Thursday (27th September) which takes place in the Blues Bar at Chester FC’s Swansway Chester Stadium.
The meeting will get underway at 7.30pm.
CFU AGM Meeting Agenda
Draft Minutes from 2017 AGM
Financial Report year ending May 2018
Five directors posts were advertised as available, however only 3 applications were received. As the number of candidates does not equal or exceed the available places, there will be no election but an affirmative ballot at the AGM. Each candidate will be put before the meeting for the approval of members. To be elected each candidate must receive the support of more than half those present in person at the AGM and those who are not able to attend and have expressed their preference by returning the proxy form.
Since the AGM packs were sent out one candidate withdrew their application to stand, and so the two remaining candidates will need their applications ratifying at this Thursday’s meeting.
Previously we have streamed the CFU meetings live, however, due to the provider now charging for streaming. We are currently looking at other streaming options at present which would hopefully allow us to show the meeting live on Thursday night.
We look forward to seeing you there on Thursday night.
Please note that owing to the water damage incurred at the Swansway Chester Stadium on Sunday, a decision has been made to postpone Thursday’s night’s City Fans United members meeting.
Safety is of course paramount in this situation, and at present several areas of the ground are deemed as ‘Out of Bounds’ due to the water ingress and the board are currently in the process of trying to resolve the issues currently being faced and ensuring there is no risk to anyone’s safety within the ground.
We will announce a revised date once we are in a position to do so, but we’d also like to remind those interested in standing for election that they will need to submit their application by Friday 17th August. Please refer to our recent mailing for further details on this. or by reading our previous announcement regarding the upcoming AGM.
