Trust Board Elections 2022

The Swansea City Supporters’ Trust holds Annual Elections for Swans Trust Members to have the chance to be elected to the Trust Board. Full Board Members usually serve for up to a two year term and are eligible to stand for re-election.

Notice is hereby given that this year there will be SEVEN vacancies for election to the Trust Board, SIX of which will serve for a period of 2 years from the 1st August 2022 and ONE for a period of 1 year from the 1st August 2022.

If you would like to put yourself forward to be elected as a Trust Board member, please download and complete the Trust Board Nomination Form 2022 and return it via email to the Trust Secretary paul.barrett@swanstrust.co.uk or by post to our Registered Office by Friday 1st July, 2022.

If you are having difficulty in getting the completed Nomination form returned please get in touch with the Trust Secretary at paul.barrett@swanstrust.co.uk

What you are required to do:

Please include your name and full address on the Trust Board Nomination Form 2022 and ensure it is signed and dated. Note that nominations MUST be supported by SIX Swans Trust members who were full Trust Members on or before the 12th June, 2022.

Please refer to our Prospective Board Members Guidelines and also complete a brief statement about yourself (strictly maximum of 250 words) to accompany your Nomination Form. This will then be circulated to our full Trust members in the event of a ballot being required.

Edit 21/6/22 – as we have received expressions of interest and questions from members in the past few days we thought it would be useful to share them in a short  Elections Q&A which we hope you find helpful.

Once completed please return the Nomination Form and personal 250 word statement to the Trust Secretary by Friday 1st July, 2022.

Note: A ballot will be held if more than SEVEN Members are nominated. Trust Members who held full membership on the 12th June 2022 will be eligible to vote in any subsequent ballot.

If elected you will serve for a period of up to  TWO years from 1st August 2022. The main qualification you will need is enthusiasm and a desire to see the Swans succeed through the Club and the Trust working together. No experience is necessary and there is no salary or expenses.

You will be expected to join the monthly Board Meetings which are normally held on the first Monday of each month in Swansea or virtually commencing at 4pm and participate in various other sub-groups, Trust related activities and responsibilities as appropriate.

* On the 11th June 2022 you were a Full Swans Trust Member and you are aged 18 or over.

* You are not subject to a disqualification order under the Company Directors Disqualification Act.
