Default WST - Club board Policy

I see that the Trust have released a document outlining the relationship between the Trust and the club boards

https://wst.org.uk/wp/?wpdmpro=gover...l-board-policy

Seems a very poor document to me as it doesn't address the areas that caused the January fallout. Namely, what information is allowable for the club board to not share with the Trust board and what is the policy on board members found to be leaking confidential information

There should be some rules regarding withholding information from the 'owners' or fans.

Not allowing them to select which information to tell us and when to tell us to help protect their own positions on the board and using information as propaganda to in effect 'buy' support.

Is this policy going before members at the WST forthcoming AGM for members approval ??

GOOD QUESTION.

The document is well-meaning but poorly written. Should be active not passive; use 'shall' instead of 'will' etc etc.

Like much that has transpired since the January fiasco, it alludes to much yet gives away nothing. Perhaps if we were given a brief summary of what happened between the two boards then we could assess how effective this policy is to address the problems?

Being cynical I'd say that's the reason it won't happen.

Thats been arse covered by everyone.
The summary is basic but doesnt define a board structure or any actual roles.

I thought the roles were fairly widely known.
Individual Directors having responsibility for overseeing certain aspects of the Club.
Spencer is first point of contact for the manager and football matters.
John Mills looks after the IT.
Mark. All financial matters.
Phil Salmon. Ground maintenance and development.
Gavin - Legal stuff (I think)

The staff look after the day to day issues.

I disagree. I think the policy gives us a very good indication of what went wrong. There's a lot of detail about how changes to the budget should be authorised (item 6), which suggests that may have been a problem in the past. And there's a lot about appointing staff (item 8) which we know as been a problem in the past.

As for what information should be shared, the document is very clear. Anything pertinent to the Football Club's Key Performance Indicators (which will surely include league position and management) must be shared with the Trust Board at EVERY meeting.

Leaking would be very difficult to deal with in a document like this because we want transparency. It would probably need a document all on its own.

But the document puts in place steps to ensure it doesn't happen again and to make the process more transparent. The lack of such a document was probably a major contribution to the row – Trust Board members and Football Board members no doubt had different views as to what each should do. This document removes any uncertainty.

Crucially, the new process will formally:
  1. Hold the Football Board accountable to the Trust Board for financial performance (6) and on-pitch performance (7).
  2. Ensure the Football Board's performance is discussed at all Trust Board meetings and minutes made available to members (5.1 and 5.6).
  3. Ensure that all staff appointments and sackings must be ratified by the Trust Board (8.1).
  4. Prevent the Football Board spending more money than has been agreed (6).
