The Big City Census 2013

Monday, 15 April 2013 05:05

This weekend, The Big City Census 2013 has been sent out to City Fans United members, either by e-mail or by post, depending on what details we hold for you.

 

CFU & Chester FC Chairman, Tony Durkin, emphasized the importance of this year's Survey being completed by members:

 

"I would like to say a big thank you to all our members for the efforts that have been put in this year.  We have had an unbelievable three years since the misery of going out of business.  We have all been learning how to run a football Club and I can assure you that the Board are striving to improve our performance off the field.

Now things get serious.  We know that we are stepping up a level next season and we all need to raise our game.  That means building income streams through matches, sponsorship and growing our presence in the wider community.  Our model relies on us all pulling together and each giving what we can to build our Club.  Some are in a position to give money and others can give time.  Even if you are in a position to do neither, your support by simply being a CFU member means more than you might imagine.  Thank you.

You will find questions in the Census about next year’s admission prices and CFU membership fees.  Please consider these carefully – the Board have made recommendations but ultimately it is up to you as owners of the Club.

There is also the chance to vote for your CFU Player of the Season in the Census!

The information you give us will be vital in helping us to shape our strategy for the coming season.  Please just click on the link below and complete the survey by 5pm on Monday 22nd April."

CFU WORKING PARTY WANTS TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS!
Written by City Fans United   
Monday, 15 April 2013 04:59

At the CFU AGM held last November, members voted to set-up a Working Party to review the Club’s current structure and organisation. The aim is to make sure that we have the best possible arrangements going forward; that they are fully fit for purpose and afford openness and democratic accountability consistent with our fan-owned model.



A number of fans came forward to volunteer to be on the Working Party and since the New Year they have been working closely with the present Board and staff from Supporters Direct. A part of their work has been looking at the structures of other fan-owned clubs to assess their arrangements to see if there are any best practice models or ideas out there that we could adopt.


The Working Party are now conducting a major survey of CFU members in order to gather your views and comments. The survey has been designed for us by Supporters Direct and should take around 10 minutes to complete.


You can access the survey on the link below.

CFU Working Party Survey

We would be grateful if you could complete this survey by Thursday 25th April.  Thank-you for assistance in helping to shape our future.
