Name Dave Dalton (Co-opted Member until 31 July 2018)
Occupation Business Management & IT Consultant
Current role Membership/Communications
Why did you join the Trust Board: I put my name forward for election to the Trust Board in August 2017 and was subsequently invited as a co-opted member from September 2017. I felt it was the time to apply for a Trust Board position as I wanted to get actively involved in the many challenges that I could see lay ahead for the Supporters Trust.
What attributes/skills are you able to bring to the Board. I am the Ceredigion Jacks Supporters Group Founder Member & Co-ordinator and have good organisational skills from also running my own business. I believe I can offer sound and balanced opinions and advice to the wide range of functions and duties that the Trust has a responsibility for. I am methodical in my approach and willing to offer my time and business knowledge to the Trust if I feel I can make a difference.
How do you feel the Trust can further develop its representation of members and the wider fan base. The Trust now needs to evolve into a more modern day organisation, offering better communication and transparency to its members and Swansea City supporters in general. This should be done via the many platforms that Swans supporters now use to access and discuss information relating to the club. Rightly or wrongly, the club many of us grew up with has now changed beyond all recognition. I believe it is now time for the Swansea City Supporters Trust to do its utmost to do the same if we are to overcome some potentially difficult years ahead. I hope that, given time, I can help to make this happen.
