Resolutions

Detailed operating statement which sets out the financial position for the year ended May 2015. A full set of financial statements with accompanying accountants report will be posted on the CFU website and copies may be obtained on request by contacting me by telephone on 01244371346 or by email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Candidate manifestos for prospective Board members which include a photograph

Official ballot paper & Proxy form are available to CFU  members from society secretary Marion Needham on request. telephone 01244371346 or by email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Four director posts were advertised as available and eleven nominations have been agreed by the Election Management Group. All candidates have provided a manifesto containing information about themselves for your consideration and these are enclosed with this letter. As the number of candidates exceeds the available places, an election needs to take place. We have obtained the assistance of another local Supporters Trust to act as scrutineer and returning officer to oversee the receipt and counting of your votes independently. This year Alan Fox from Wrexham Supporters Trust will be performing this role.

Current CFU members may vote for a maximum of four candidates by placing a cross next to the candidates of your choice on the ballot paper provided. Your ballot paper is separate from your proxy form to ensure that your vote remains confidential and will be separated when your envelope is opened by our colleague at Wrexham. Neither proxy form nor ballot form will be seen by anyone at CFU/Chester Football Club. This is the only method of voting for candidates as you will not be able to vote at the AGM.

What to do next
Please complete both the election ballot paper and the proxy voting form and return these to Alan Fox, the returning officer using the Wrexham Supporters Trust address at the bottom of the ballot paper and proxy form. Please do not return the forms to the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.

And finally
The AGM is a key time for CFU members and we are hoping for a good attendance at this meeting and you will see there are some very important items on the agenda. For the first time there will be a live streaming of this meeting and if you want to take part by this method please email Neil Bellis on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it Whether you are attending in person, attending via streaming or not able to attend please make sure that you use your vote in the election for candidates to the board. For those attending it would be helpful if you could arrive promptly so that we can start on time and give full consideration to all the items to be considered. We look forward to seeing on 26th November, 2015. Yours sincerely Marion Needham Secretary
