La St. Mirren Independent Supporters Association(SMISA) ha annunciato i candidati per la carica di rappresentante dei tifosi nel board del St. Mirren FC, il posto nel Cda rientra tra gli accordi siglati la scorsa estate tra Gordon Scott e la SMISA che condurranno il club scozzese sotto il controllo del supporters' trust con un piano di acquisto articolato su di un arco pluriennale(qui dettagli).

L'associazione di tifosi, che conta oltre 1.000 membri, avrà modo di eleggere nella prossima Assemblea Generale Annuale di Dicembre il primo rappresentate scelto democraticamente dopo l'impegno ad interim del consigliere David Nicol cooptato nel board del St. Mirren nella definizione dell'operazione di passaggio di proprietà(qui dettagli).

Di seguito il comunicato da smisa.net e video dei candidati Kenny Morrison, David Nicol e David Riley(More at smisa.net/election).

St. Mirren Board Fan Representative Election

One of the key parts of the #BuyTheBuds campaign was that SMISA members elect one of their own to serve as a fan representative on the club board.

When Gordon Scott took over as chairman in summer 2016 he appointed SMISA committee member David Nicol to serve on the board as a temporary SMISA representative while we put in place an election procedure.

But the plan was always to have an election before the end of the year in order for the successful candidate to be elected to the St Mirren board at the club AGM (which will likely be in December).
This election is a first – never before have St Mirren fans been able to directly elect a member of the board of the club. Be aware you are part of a movement which is helping lead the way within Scotland in supporter engagement and involvement – SMISA members are being offered opportunities to impact on and shape the direction of St Mirren which go beyond anything open to fans of most other clubs.

Over the past few weeks we have been accepting applications from members to run as candidates in that election. Candidates were required to have been nominated by at least ten members. There are three candidates in the election – Kenny Morrison, David Nicol and David Riley.

Members were emailed on Monday 7 November with details of how to vote via secure online ballot. We will also be issuing postal votes to the small number of members not online.

Voting will run until 11.59 on Monday 21 November, and the results will be announced within five days of that.

There are a number of pieces of important information you should read before voting.

Below, Kenny, David and David have each provided a 500-word candidate statement where they outline their credentials for the role and why they want the job. You can also see a list of members who nominated each candidate, as well as a short video from each of the three guys.

We would also stress the choice of SMISA representative on the St Mirren board is of crucial importance for the future operation of both the club and the trust.

The most important thing in all of this is St Mirren, and it is imperative we as a membership elect someone who can work with Gordon Scott and the rest of the board to help take the club forward.
We also need someone capable of being the key link between the club and SMISA members, to allow you to play your part in contributing to that.

With that in mind, there is a job description in the rules and documents section below which details the responsibilities of the role, and the skills and experience we feel will help someone be effective as a fan representative, based on our experience so far.

We are a democratic organisation and the decision of who to vote for is of course yours – but we would urge you to use the job description as a guide to help you do so.
