09 Dec 2017 : Round-up from the Trust AGM
At the 2017 AGM of Runcorn Linnets FC Limited in the clubhouse, the make-up of the new Trust Board was officially announced.
After receiving eight valid nominations, the Board decided that it would operate with 12 members (the maximum allowed by the club's constitution), instead of 11.
All eight applicants were, therefore, automatically elected to serve alongside the four board members who each have another year to serve.
In making the decision, the board took into account an ever-increasing workload and the need for an even closer working relationship with the Linnets' Junior section now that we have a new clubhouse, co-run and maintained by the Senior and Junior sections.
The eight successful candidates, all elected for two years, are (in alphabetical order of surname) Karen Boyle, Mark Buckley, Ciaran Clotworthy, Paul Eastup, Stuart Graham, Tracy Measor, Adrian Taylor and Reg Woods. They join Mike Bignall, Hedley Edwards, John Pickering and Steve Pritchard on the Trust Board. Club treasurer Phil Wainwright is an externally co-opted member of the Board, on account of his skills in a specific role and as a representative of Runcorn Supporters Club.
Externally co-opted members need to be reappointed annually by the Board and this is traditionally on the agenda for the January Trust Board meeting.
A resolution tabled by Ciaran Clotworthy that the Club Secretary's role should be classed as ex-officio was passed unanimously.
This effectively means that the role of Club Secretary does not need to be filled by a member of the Trust Board (although it is at present).
The vote formally confirms the roles of Club Secretary and Trust Board member as being completely independent of each other while acknowledging that the same person can fill either or both roles at the same time. No constitutional change was required so the resolution was passed on a show of hands.
