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 first time in the 2020 election. The election policy permits electioneering through social media sites and openly in the press. PST will not, however, be holding hustings events at any stage even though there has been a partial easing of the lockdown restrictions (Monday, 15 June 2020). However, no matter how successful Board members are in carrying out their tasks, they have to stand for re-election every three years.
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.
Details of what you have to do 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, 15 June 2020.
Nominations to stand in the Election to be with the Election Management Group by 6pm on Sunday, 12 July 2020.
Voting papers will be sent out to qualifying members by Monday, 13 July 2020.
Voting closes at 6pm on Monday, 27 July 2020 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, 26 June 2020 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 11th AGM will be held on date to be advised either at Fratton Park or via Microsoft Teams when the results will be declared, if not earlier, and you can meet the successful candidates.
