Wycombe Wanderers Founders Trust (Thursday 23rd September 2004)
The 500 former members of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club Limited have received this week details of a 'Consultation Meeting' of the Founders Trust which will take place on Thursday 30th September in the Vere Suite at Adams Park, starting at 8pm. The objective of the 'Founders Trust' includes protecting the heritage of the Football Club following the conversion to a PLC in July 2004. Membership of the Trust will also be open to all other current Season Ticket holders of three years or more. Former Wanderers' player Steve Brown has agreed be a guest speaker at the open meeting where the agenda includes discussion on putting forward an elected representative to sit on the PLC Board.

Interim Director of the Trust David McGee said in a statement released to the press this week " We are delighted that Steve is prepared to take time out of his busy schedule to speak at our meeting. I think it is an indication of the high regard Steve has for the fans of this club, a sentiment, which is truly reciprocated by the fans. One thing everyone who attends next Thursday can be assured of is that they will be entertained as only "Brownie" can."

'Brownie' has agreed to speak informally and take questions from the floor on his experiences in football, the highs the lows and how things are progressing for him since he retired at the end of last season, after 10 years at the club. However, the main purpose of the meeting will be take forward the Trust formed from a membership that voted 78% in favour of the converting the Football Club to PLC. A joint statement by Interim Directors David McGee, Ian Mather and Colin Smith commented "It is now the duty of every member to ensure that the mechanisms are put in place so that all the views of the membership are represented at the PLC Board level."

The Trust organisers have issued explanatory documents to the former members inviting them to become members of a Trust that will have special authorative powers over certain aspects of the PLC. These 'special rights' will require majority approval from the Founder Share holders before any vote can be put to Ordinary Shareholders.

The invitation to former members concludes "For the Trust to become an effective and representative body it requires full participation from its membership. We hope you will be able to attend the meeting and share you thoughts and opinions of how, together, we can nurture the Trust into a professional, powerful voice."
