Default Re: WST AGM Notice

Am looking forward to seeing the submissions of the new candidates. Though continuity and experience is of course very helpful to any organisation, it is also great to see some new voices coming through with new ideas.

That is the true strength of a community owned club.

Agree. Any organisation , either salaried Or volunteers , will find that the enthusiasm and ability of its key people will decline over time. Those WST volunteers who fought the Great War of Moss and Roberts need to be revitalised and energised by new people coming forward. That's life and hopefully that will happen. Time to move on from yesterday's people and get some new ideas and dynamism in.

That's a good narrative and is actually what's been happening for several years. This year for example there have been (if I'm reading the minutes correctly) at least three new people coopted onto the board. And from the class of 2011 (the end of the "Great War" as you put it ) only four board members are left.

I make that 5 Board members from 2011. Spencer Harris, John Mills, Gavin Jones , Pete Jones and Mark Williams. They are , without doubt, the most influential and powerful people in our movement. Not a criticism but an illustration that not much has changed at the top in 6 years.

The members above are also the most active in the organisation and have guided the trust and club over many years.
As one who, in the early days of the trust, was sceptical of their ability to run the club I admire the dedication of all who serve and applaud their efforts to achieve future success.
New blood is always welcome as long as there is some continuity and consistency in the aims.

Although Peter Jones isn't on the club board. I think the point is that the four who are have been reapponted a number of times by the Trust board (the members representatives)
which regularly changes. And most of them are up for election this time so if people are unhappy they can make their voices heard. Those individuals now have 6 hard earned years experience of running the business. Including learning from mistakes one hopes. My perception is that recent changes to the club board ,not criticising those who left at all, has resulted in a generally more positive environment for everyone. My concern is succession planning and corporate memory. What happens if/when they step down. Football must be a unique business especially financially. Particularly with our model.

I don't think we disagree on much QR. I would like , however , to see more interaction with members and a greater use of public discussion to involve them in formulating policy and working together. Will be interesting to see who have put themselves forward for election and whether or not there are any Members' Resolutions on the table.
As regards new blood I must pay tribute to Paul Smith of the Fundraising team who has been on the Board for a couple of years. Approachable, efficient, and hard-working , he illustrates the qualities needed in a go ahead Fans' Organisation. "Our Club, Our Ground " has become a bit of a cliche in recent years but the sentiment remains good. Let's all work together to bring back the great days for Wrexham AFC!

Funnily enough I remember our posts quite a few years ago when I was encouraging you to join the WST. Am so glad you did.

Wafc1926 as you know well yourself, has a huge amount of experience, so am always keen to hear his views on improvements on any subject connected with WAFC.

I think its about achieving a balance of continuity and experience coupled with new recruits and fresh ideas. And just like any successful organisation, it pays dividends to be seen to be open, transparent, flexible and dedicated to the cause.

Would like to see a much bigger response than normal.
