Standing for Election

Have you ever though of standing for election to the Trust Board?

In these days of the aborted European Super League and the Government’s Fan Led Review, led by Tracey Crouch MP, supporter ownership has never had a higher profile.

Have you ever wondered what is involved in being a supporter owned club? Have you ever

wanted to get involved in the governance of our club? Well now is your chance. The Exeter City AFC Supporters' Society Board (the Trust Board) has recently published the date of the 2021 Annual General Meeting and dates for potential elections to the Trust Board.

What Do I Need to Stand For Election?

In order to stand for election to the Trust Board you are required to be:

  • A current Trust member aged over 16 at the date of the Election (which is considered the AGM date).

  • Nominated by three current Trust members who are members prior to the election eligibility date (August 2, 2021).

What’s Involved?

The Trust Board meets monthly, generally on a Monday night at 18:00 with meetings usually

lasting up to, but no more than, three hours. Trust Board meetings are split into two parts, Part A, which is open to all members, and Part B, where commercial, personal and legal matters are discussed. There are four sub-committees of the Trust Board:

  • The Trust Finance Group

  • The Ownership and Membership Group

  • The Community Group

  • The Communications and Engagement Group

Trustees are expected to join at least one of these sub-committees in an area that they are interested or have experience with. Thereafter, Trustees can volunteer to assist with any of the Trust Board activities and initiatives that they wish.

Still interested or have further questions?

Why not come along and attend the public Part A section of the Trust Board?

Would you like to speak to a current Trustee about what is involved?

If you have any questions at all about the Trust Board and your potential involvement please contact the Trust Secretary, Phil Burden, via
