HUISA invited to take a seat on Bulls' board of directors
10:01am Thursday 16th January 2014 in Sport
HEREFORD United Independent Supporters' Association have been invited to take a seat on the club's board of directors.
But HUISA chairman Keith Dodd has admitted that the exact way in which the arrangement can be made to work has yet to be thrashed out.
"We want it to be different members of the HUISA committee who attend meetings and the board have agreed in principle to that," said Dodd. "But club chairman David Keyte and I have not yet had time to sit down and discuss how it might be worked out."
Before the recent share issue, HUISA were one of the biggest shareholders in the club and many of the committee also hold shares in the club.
Shortly before Christmas, HUISA added to their shareholding with the purchase of an additional 8,000 shares at a cost of £2,000.
The situation of having a supporters' representative on the board has a relatively recent precedent.
During the Graham Turner era, HUISA committee member Steve Bayliss served as a club director for a spell after being appointed in February 2000, at the same time as current Bulls vice-chairman Grenville Smith.
