It has been a couple of months since our season ended and so I thought it best to write a Supporters Club update for you all.
Firstly, when Andy and I started the Supporters Club we were very much on our own in terms of coming up with a club structure alongside club aims and objectives. As the Supporters Club developed we brought a couple of extra pairs of hands on board with Andrew and Alexander both taking on Committee Member roles, with Andy and myself continuing to share the Chairperson role. Andrew has also taken on the role of Treasurer. The Supporters Club is now at a fairly stable point and so Andy has decided to step down as Co-Chair but continue on as a Committee Member with both Andrew and Alexander. If this is getting confusing then there will be a “Who We Are” page on our website soon!
Current memberships are valid until 1st September 2017 however we will be releasing details of our new membership scheme shortly. Any renewals before 1st September will still receive all benefits from the old and new membership scheme so you won’t miss out by renewing early. Any non-renewals will continue to receive Supporters Club benefits up to 1st September 2017. As previous, membership sign-ups will be welcome all season. We have been busy working behind the scenes in order to try and give you more benefits for next season with sponsors, prizes etc. If anyone has any suggestions they would like to put forward then please feel free to get in touch.
As you know, we have approached fans with the idea of an AGM. We still intend to host an AGM and are looking at holding this sometime in the beginning of August when the majority of summer holidays are out the way. The venue is yet to be decided but there is a strong possibility that we will host it in the Hard Rock Cafe meaning it will be a fairly low-key event with the opportunity to have food and drink during it.
One of the main reasons we intend to hold an AGM is to “introduce” anyone who wishes to apply to be on the Supporters Club Committee. We are always on the look out for more helpers and recently we have had some fans express interest in becoming more involved with the Supporters Club. Becoming part of the Supporters Club Committee would involve a range of duties but you can play as big or small a role as you like throughout the season. All we ask from you in return is that you are passionate about the Glasgow Rocks, have a desire to help strengthen the link between the club and the supporters and provide a platform for fans to come together. I will keep you posted when I have more details about the AGM.
If you would like to apply for the Committee then please fill in the form below. All applications will be processed immediately and we will contact you upon receipt of your application. The application will then be finalised and any new Committee members will be introduced at the AGM. If you have any questions then feel free to still fill in the form and put your questions in the comments box. Please note, in order to become a Committee Member, you must be a registered member of the Supporters Club.
