officers reflect on conference - 20/05/06
Boston United Supporters Trust (BUFCST) was represented by four acting
officers at the Supporters Direct North West Regional Conference, held
at Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire CCC, today.
The acting officers
attended a number of workshops covering topics as varied as community
interest companies, working with the media, insolvency and administration
and mapping for communities. Acting officers also attended a session on
holding elections and AGMs ahead of the BUFCST AGM later this year.
Conference ended with a lively two-hour panel discussion on the role clubs
can play in the community.
The Conference was well attended by numerous Trusts and Trust-owned clubs,
including AFC Wimbledon, FC United of Manchester and AFC Telford. Guest
speakers and panellists included Labour MP Tony Lloyd, 2005 Sports Journalist
of the Year David Conn and the chief executive of Burnley, Dave Edmondson.
Reflecting on the day,
BUFCST acting officer Adam Upsall said: “The regional conferences
are a real festival of football knowledge. The chance to meet other Trusts
and Supporters Direct representatives to share advice and best practice
is invaluable, and we’ve learned an awful lot today.”
