The General Meeting is an important event and all members are encouraged to attend.

All members will receive full formal notification of the meeting no later than 21 days before the meeting.

Any member intending to submit proposed resolutions are strongly urged to read Rule 29 of the Club’s constitution which is available on the website. Please note that if your membership has lapsed you will need to renew before the 15th March 2018 to be able to attend and vote at the meeting.

1. Submission of motions.

Writing the motion.

Submitting a motion should consist of two parts:

a) Content of the motion (this is what will be voted on)

b) Justification for the motion (this is the argument in favour and will be printed in full in the members’ notes for the General Meeting).

The motion should:

a) Clearly state whether the motion is intended as a Members’ resolution, a Constitutional rule change, a Members’ vote, or a Point of Agenda.

b) Be written in English and be clear to read.

c) Clearly state the name and membership number of the proposer.

d) Be signed and dated by the proposer if posted or sent by email without signature.

e) Include contact details for the proposer (preferably a phone number and an email address).

f) For each type of motion the proposer should obtain the signatures of 5 other members on a single written copy of the motion and clearly print the names and membership numbers of each member next to their signature. Alternatively the motion can be accepted with the same content but without signatures. If any member cannot find 5 supporters of the motion they can ask the Club to circulate to members via the Members’ Forum.

g) A signed copy of the motion should be delivered to the Club clearly marked for the attention of the Club Secretary or by email without signature. If posted, the motion should be made available to the Club Secretary in a digital format if possible.

h) Motions must reach the Club Secretary not later than noon 45 days before the General Meeting is to be held. The meeting is on Thursday 12 April 2018 so motions must be received by noon Monday February 26th 2018.

Helping us to keep you informed about FC United

At FC United we want to make sure that we keep all our members and users of our facility, fully informed about what is happening at the club.

On May 25th 2018 there will be some significant changes to the law on data protection.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is intended to enhance the privacy of all of us as individuals in the way that organisations deal with the personal data that they collect about us.

One of the effects of the new law is that we will have to ensure that all of our members, season ticket holders and other people that we deal with actively consent to receiving certain communications from us.

We will therefore be contacting you in the near future to further explain the changes and to ask for your consent for us to continue to communicate with you about all aspects of the club once the new law comes into effect in May.

Kind Regards
Viv Ware
FC United of Manchester
