Elect to stand!
This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.
Are you a member of the FSF? Fancy getting more involved?
If you have opinions about campaigns the FSF should be running and can speak passionately and knowledgably about issues relevant to football supporters, why not consider standing for election to the FSF National Council at this years Fans’ Parliament?
If you have a particular expertise or interest in a specific area, or if you simply feel that you can represent the organisation in a positive manner to help ensure that football supporters’ interests are safeguarded in the modern game, simply submit your nomination, along with the names of a proposer and seconder to Mike Williamson, FSF Secretary, in writing or by email, no later than 14 days before the election date. Nominees, proposers and seconders should be individual members of the FSF or members of Affiliate clubs.
You will be asked to prepare a short (no more than 1 side A4) personal resumee of your past as regards your interest in football and what you feel you can offer to the FSF which will be circulated to all members at the Fans’ Parliament.
If you would like to submit a motion for debate, they CAN be submitted right up to the day of the Fans’ Parliament (again to Mike Williamson), but in order to allow members time to look over and discuss them beforehand through inclusion in the Fans’ Parliament booklet which gets sent to all members, they should be entered as early as possible.
Motions should also have proposers and seconders which should be named when the motion is submitted. Lack of either of those means the motion will not be discussed at the FP.
