Trust Members Update – 27th November

As previously announced the Trust AGM is taking place this Thursday, 29th November 2018 at 7.30pm in the Caledonian Suite.

Food will be available from 6.00 p.m. with the bar opening at the same time. Complimentary Tea & Coffee will also be available.

The AGM will follow the usual format i.e.

Adoption of the Minutes

Chairman’s report

Finance Report including appointment of the Auditors

Election of Directors

It has previously been announced that 5 people were standing for 4 places on the Trust Board, and therefore an election would be necessary. However, one of the candidates, John Bignell, has decided not to stand, meaning there are 4 people standing for 4 places. As a result of this, a ballot will not be necessary, and each candidate will be subject to an individual resolution to elect them. A statement from John Bignell regarding his decision is below.

“Changes to my personal circumstances recently have led to my decision over the weekend to regretfully withdraw my nomination to serve on the Trust Board as I am unable to give the time and commitment that I know will be needed for a further three years.

I will continue to support the Trust fully and indeed have agreed to continue with the membership duties to facilitate an orderly handover and through the very important Legacy vote period.

The Chairman and Board continue to have my full support especially in relation to their continuing negotiations with the potential investors.

My life long support of the club will obviously remain and I intend to continue with my match day duties and other commitments.

I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve this past three years and I look forward to exciting times ahead for this great club of ours.”

The 4 candidates will still make their planned talks, so Members have a clearer understanding of their background and skills.

Following the official business of the evening, there will be a 15 minute presentation by Paul Foley the Head of Wycombe Wanderers Sports and Education Trust, who will update members on the work of WWSET.

I will then update members on the progress and planned timetable for the Legacy Members meeting and vote re the potential investment from Bill Luby and Jim Collis, and if time permits, we will finish the evening with a Q&A with myself and Michael Davies regarding Football Club matters.

For the first time we will be live streaming the AGM via the private Facebook group.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
