Further details on the AGM & Election process can be found here

The Robins Trust are pleased to announce that our Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday, December 9, and that we are hoping to make this an in-person event.

Our AGM will include the final process of our board elections which we are opening today, as well as a fans forum with members of the Cheltenham Town board and manager Michael Duff.

Our hope is to hold the event in person – with a live stream option – to ensure all supporters are able to attend and have their say.

We hope to be in a position to finalise details in the coming weeks. With updates posted to the Trust’s website and social media channels.

We are able to be more definite on our elections, which open today and will run for eight weeks until the AGM on December 9.

Full details on the elections, the timetable, the number of available board spaces and who is eligible to stand can be found here.

We appreciate that it’s been a bit of time since the Trust last contacted our members, so here are a few answers to some questions we are anticipating ahead of the process starting.

Am I still a Robins Trust member? permalink

If you were a Trust member at the time of the first lockdown being called, you will still be a member now.

At the time of the onset of the pandemic, the Trust board took the decision to freeze memberships due to the uncertainty of the time.

That period has been extended until the AGM date of December 9 to allow all members to participate in the AGM and elections.

What about renewing my membership? permalink

For much of the last six months the Robins Trust board have been working on a new membership structure, and a new online management portal.

We are planning on launching memberships and the new portal as part of a relaunch before the AGM, keep your eyes peeled on the Trust’s website and social media channels.

Why should I stand for election to the Robins Trust board? permalink

In the past two years the Trust board has been strengthened by some new volunteers, who are already making a huge difference – our SLO Jenny Hancock being a prime example.

The Trust has also played a role in helping to shape the government’s Fan Led Review of football and will work alongside the Football Supporters Association to implement its recommendations.

We want our board to be as strong, as diverse and as representative as possible of the Cheltenham Town family and would welcome new members with open arms.
