No matter how successful Board members are in carrying out their tasks, they must stand for re-election every three years. To that end, I have pleasure in giving notification of this year’s PST Board Election. In doing so I also notify you that the amended Election Policy approved at the PST Board meeting on Monday, 1 June 2020 will be used for the fourth time in the 2023 election. The election policy permits electioneering through social media sites and openly in the press. Furthermore, PST may hold face-to-face hustings events this year following the end of lockdown restrictions on Friday, 1 April 2022 - to be advised at the close of nominations.
The Pompey Supporters’ Trust will therefore seek to elect FOUR Board Members this year and we would like to invite candidates formally to consider applying to serve for a three-year term to help shape and progress the PST.
A role description of a PST Board member can be found in the Election section of our website, under “About Us".
The Election Schedule is as follows:
- The date on which you must be a Member of the PST to qualify to vote or to nominate a candidate is Monday, 12 June 2023.
- Nominations to stand in the Election to be with the Election Management Group by 6pm on Monday, 19 June 2023.
- Voting papers will be sent out to qualifying members by Wednesday, 21 June 2023.
- Voting closes at 6pm on Wednesday, 12 July 2023 and all ballots must be received by that date to count.
The ballot will be conducted by email and post; and we urge all members to make sure we have your correct contact details and that your subscription, if you are not a life member, is up to date. Please email [email protected] to check your details.
Please remember that not more than one vote will be accepted from the same email address. Therefore, if an email address is being shared with another member; one member will have to register another email address with the Trust by Friday, 16 June 2023 or vote by printing off the voting form from the PST website and posting it. If nicknames are used in the voting process, they may not be recognised, and the vote cast would not be counted.
Nomination Forms and the Election Policy, Board Membership and Conduct Policy, and Social Media Policy, each candidate must sign up to all three, are on the Trust’s Website.
The 14th AGM will be held on Thursday, 21st September 2023 either at Fratton Park or via Zoom (hybrid) when the results will be declared, if not earlier, and you can meet the successful candidates.
