Business Review Workstreams Now Fully Resourced
In our Board Update of 5th January we announced we’d be kicking off business reviews in four key areas – Football, Finance & Commercial, Fan & Community Engagement and Infrastructure & Operations – and that this work would require volunteers to support the board. We also said that if we are to achieve our vision of playing Premiership football in or before season 2026/27, we needed supporters to put their shoulders to the wheel. We’re delighted to say that, within a week, all four workstreams are now fully resourced with sixteen fans, all with relevant skills and a desire to help the club, volunteering to work with the board.
The objective of all four workstreams is to review current and recommend future strategies, systems and structures, to ensure they are fit for purpose and appropriately resourced going forward. These outputs will feed into a new business plan for the club to take us through to season 2026/27.
A month ago David White, one of the interim board representatives of Falkirk Supporters’ Society, let us know that due to increasing workload in his role as Chairman of Falkirk Community Trust, he would be unable to participate in the above business reviews. Now that the workstreams are fully resourced, David has stepped down from the board and will be replaced by FSS in due course.
We’d like to thank David for stepping up at short notice to represent FSS, and for his efforts on the board over the last six weeks. We’d also like to thank the sixteen volunteers, plus those who offered their support but who aren’t needed at this time. We’re committed to creating a more open, inclusive culture where everyone who wants to help the club can do so in some capacity. There will therefore be further opportunities to get involved in the future.
