Dear PST Members,
I have pleasure in giving notification of this year’s PST Board Election. In doing so I also notify you that the Election Policy approved at the AGM on Monday, 8 December 2014 will be used for the fifth time in the 2019 election. The election policy permits electioneering through social media sites and openly in the press. PST will hold hustings in Portsmouth at some stage (if candidates so wish) to give candidates an opportunity to meet members of the Trust; and to communicate with our worldwide fan base. 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 TWO 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 are 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 Wednesday, 15 May 2019.
Nominations to stand in the Election to be with the Election Management Group by 6pm on Friday, 14 June 2019.
Voting papers will be sent out to qualifying members by Friday, 21 June 2019.
Voting closes at 6pm on Monday, 8 July 2019 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, 31 May, 2019 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 10th AGM will be held on Thursday, 26 September 2019 at Fratton Park when the results will be declared, if not earlier, and you can meet the successful candidates.
