  • FCA Approval and Society Board Elections

    Bury News Feed


    We can confirm that the FCA have approved the amalgamation of the two Community Benefit Societies and the process will now begin to elect a new board to run the Football Supporters’ Society of Bury.


    The timescale for nominations and voting will be issued soon, but we expect the process to conclude and a new board to be in place at some point in August. A formal calling notice for the Special General Meeting to announce the results will be issued with the nomination forms. Voting will all take place electronically as the new society is permitted to use electronic voting.


    Anyone considering putting their name forward for the board elections should read the election policy, code of conduct for board members and conflict of interests policy. They will need to have been a member of either Bury FC Supporters’ Society or Shakers Community Society for the past six months. They will be required to agree to the board conduct policy and undertake DBS checks if elected, and will not take their position if they fail abide by these requirements. These can be viewed below.

    In the meantime we can advise that memberships will close at 11.59pm on this Wednesday 5th July. Anyone wishing to vote should ensure they are a member of one of the societies by this date. If they are a member of both societies they will only be allowed to vote once and we have appointed an independent firm to run the process and assist with the management of the data.
