At its last meeting the new HUST Board identified priorities to address over the next six months ahead of the society’s next AGM in the autumn.
The work on these priorities will run concurrently and thus are not listed in order of importance. Many of the priorities reflect the recommendations made by the Election Management Group.
GOVERNANCE – a root and branch governance review to include the Trusts Constitution, Election Policy and the creation of a process for appointments of HUST representatives to the football club board.
MEMBERSHIP – A further review will take place to introduce measures to ensure the integrity of the societies membership data and the accuracy of contact details. Priority will be given to increase the level of email data for improved member contact and communication where possible.
INDEPENDENT SECRETARY – following the recommendation of the EMG the Board agreed to seek the appointment of an independent secretary
FUND-RAISING – in order to deliver its aims the new board recognised the importance of fundraising. Support was given to continuing the successful 50/50 draw and Bulls Lottery as well as exploring new avenues of funding.
COMMUNITY REPRESENTATION – with HFC and UITC and other bodies deemed necessary from time to time. developing in the local area and beyond to establish links of mutual benefit for and on behalf of HUST Members.
COMMUNICATIONS/LIAISON – with HUST Members on all matters of interest in a variety of ways.
How these priorities will be delivered in practice will be developed over the coming months.
