CFU board want more board members
Written by Neil Bellis   
Friday, 10 February 2017 07:38

The City Fans United board are looking for CFU members to send in their CVs as we search for more directors.

Currently there are seven board members - three down from the ten we aim for - and the board is hoping to co-opt fans who might be able to offer something different to the current board.

To help in the growth of key areas, we are specifically looking for somebody to oversee the growth of the CFU membership and also somebody else experienced in fundraising, who can bring new ideas to help grow funds.

We will, of course, consider anyone who feels they would be able to add something to the board even if they do not have experience in either of these areas.

Before you consider joining the board, please be aware that it is a commitment, but one that is worth it to help our football club move forward. Anybody who shows an interest, or would like any further information, then please contact CFU secretary Marion Needham on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

As a co-opted Director, the role will last until the next set of elections, where individuals will have the chance to then also stand for election. - Please note, to be considered for the board, all candidates must be a current CFU member.

If you are interested in the role but aren't sure about what it entails then please contact Marion and we can arrange a time for a director to speak to you. The board will also be available for members to speak to at the next CFU meeting on February 16th.
