3. To confirm the election / re-election of board members

We are pleased to confirm that committed Rovers fan, Tim Farron MP will be attending the AGM this year and, as a precursor to the meeting, we plan to show his winning performance on Celebrity Mastermind - specialist subject: Blackburn Rovers. Starts 7.15pm prompt.
It has been a busy year and the Rovers Trust have made progress on many fronts including agreeing a Memorandum of Understanding with the club, providing the club with proposals regarding a 5 Year Marketing Strategy, nominating Ewood Park to be declared an Asset of Community Value for a further 5 years. The Trust have also spent considerable time carefully considering a strategy for dialogue with the club regarding the proposals and recommendations of the Government white paper that was drafted as a result of the fan led review of football governance chaired by Tracey Crouch MP. It is our hope that these discussions will lead to the formation of a ‘Shadow Board’ made up of Rovers Trust Board Members plus representatives of other Groups to liaise with the club at regular intervals.
