STATEMENT | Governing Board and Operational Board Policy: members’ views sought

The WST are requesting members’ views on the Governing Board and Operational Board Policy, as part of our review of the club’s processes and procedures.

Following last week’s update, in which we advised of proposed changes to the Members Disciplinary and Grievance Policy, this is our next stage of the review.

Given the policy sets out the relationship between the WST Board and the Club Board, and the responsibilities of both in managing the club, it is clearly one which needs addressing at present.

We recognise this is arguably the most contentious issue around the club at the moment, and the Board accept there need to be changes to improve the running of both the Club and the Trust.

We cannot stress enough how important it is that we get this piece of work right, and so we are encouraging all supporters to get involved in this process.

A copy of the current policy can be downloaded here, and at this point nothing is off the table – we welcome all suggestions.

Coming out of this process we need a robust framework to ensure both the Club and Trust are stable, efficient and well-run.

If you have any thoughts on the policy, please email
