Notice of a General Meeting of the Wrexham Football Supporters’ Society (known as the Wrexham Supporters Trust)
To be held at 1930 on Monday 19th August 2013 at the Centenary Club, Racecourse Ground, Wrexham
In addition to the usual business of the Trust (and Joe Clarke as our guest speaker!) the purpose of the meeting is for members to consider and vote upon the following ordinary resolution proposed by the Society (Trust) Board.
Proposed by the Society Board:
1.That the Society notes that on 27th June 2013 at its Annual General Meeting the Society accepted the new policy for the appointment of the Club President
2.That the Society Board, in accordance with the policy, has nominated Mr Dixie McNeil to serve a term of three years as President of Wrexham Football Club
3.That the Society resolves to ratify the appointment of Mr Dixie McNeil as the Club President with immediate effect, in accordance with and subject to, the terms of the policy
1.Prior to the recent AGM there had been no policy for the appointment of the Club President. The previous President, Mr Arfon Griffiths MBE, has stood down. The AGM approved the new policy which provides for the Society Board to nominate an appropriate person to serve as Club President and then to seek the approval of the membership by an ordinary resolution at a general meeting.
2.The Society Board have nominated former player and manager Mr Dixie McNeil and seek the approval of the membership for his appointment
3.In accordance with the policy, the position of Club President is an honorary one with no ‘de facto’ powers to act on behalf of the Society or the Club. The role does not carry any voting rights.
4.Although it carries no executive powers, the role of Club President is to act as an ambassador for the Club and to be an active and enthusiastic figure-head and to attend functions and events at the invitation of the Society and Club Boards.
5.The role is separate from the President of the Trust who is currently Mr Bryn Law and whose position remains unchanged.
Those members who cannot attend the meeting can still vote by proxy.
A proxy form is attached and should be sent to the Chairman ‘FREEPOST WST’ to reach us by no later than Monday, 19th August 2013.
