I did get a response to my email:
As a member of Club 1872 I would like to raise some concerns about the current circumstances within Club 1872, at what I believe to be a critical junction that will determine whether Club 1872 continues to be a success or whether it disappears into obscurity, and obtain some explanations as the boards plan moving forward.
Could you please advise the boards plan in relation to the following issues:
Will the Club 1872 board consider convening a members meetings so that the board can understand members' concerns around the recent resignation of 3 directors?
Are the Club 1872 board planning on holding a snap election to fulfil the void left by losing 3 Directors or at a minimum, be canvasing members opinions as to whether there should be an election?
If no elections are planned, are there plans to co-opt members to the board and if so, what skillset are you seeking to appoint to the board an d what processes will be implemented to ensure the right mix of skills are co-opted?
As a fan, who travels home and away with a local RSC, I am deeply concerned that 2/3 candidates who stood for election on the platform of representing RSC's have now resigned, can you advise how RSC's will continue to be represented?
From my understanding, 2 of the Directors contributed much of the day to day running of the organisation, doing the unglamorous administrative tasks associated with a fan group - do you believe that you have the capabilities as a board to continue this to the standard it was previously being carried out at? Further, 2 of the resigning Directors were ever present in the Club 1872 office before match days - is this something that will continue?
I note that the social media accounts have not had any activity since Friday 17th March. Can you advise why one of the organisations biggest engagement platforms has been inactive for such a long period of time and give assurances that this will not happen again? Further to this, the resignation of the 3 directors has not been communicated on the Club 1872 website or via social media, can you give assurances that this will not continue moving forward?
I look forward to your responses.
Thank you for your email.
I will answer your points as you have detailed them
We are actively trying to arrange a members meeting and hope to announce this shortly
There is aboard meeting scheduled for early April and I am going to put this on the agenda
We have recently sent an email with regards to skill sets and this may be an option if the directors can not or do not want to hold an additional election
We are in the process of arranging a meeting with Jim from the RSC
We have an admin employee and we will use them, she will then alert the remaining directors of any issues
We have had issues getting passwords etc for the social media accounts. This is now resolved
Everyone can decide for themselves if they think that is an acceptable response.
