The current FC board will publish a list of skills and experience that they are looking for in prospective candidates, and any members who are interested in standing, can arrange to discuss this with current board members by emailing them
sammullock@fc-utd.co.uk or adrianseddon@fc-utd.co.uk dennis.shannon@fc-utd.co.uk (noting that Adrian and Dennis may be candidates in this election).

All notices and ballot forms will be available to members 21 days before the Annual General Meeting.

The online Members’ Forum will open between 20th December and 27th December 2020 for members to ask questions to those candidates standing for election.

Candidates will have until 3rd January 2021 to answer all questions.

It will be up to individual candidates if they wish to answer questions after this date.

The board will ask members to approve a change to election policy at a members meeting on Monday 7th December 2020 allowing postal ballots to be received up to 14 days after the meeting.

This is because no members can attend in person due to Covid-19 restrictions and the board wish to ensure members can vote having heard the debates at the meeting which would not be possible if, as before, postal votes needed to be received in advance of the meeting.

Should this change be approved by members all postal ballots will need to be received by 5pm on Sunday 24th January 2021.

Should this be rejected by members the deadline for receipt of postal votes would be 5.00pm on Tuesday 5th January 2021 ahead of the meeting on Sunday 10th January 2021.

We look forward to your virtual attendance at the meeting.
