  1. To be absolutely fair, that is not how it is written in the actual document - http://smisa.net/images/docs/election2016/Job_description_v1.pdf For avoidance of doubt, the document also states: "The successful candidate will [...] Be a SMISA member and be passionate about St Mirren and the community around it." and: "No specific qualifications are necessary for the position."
  2. Well done to you and the rest of the SMISA committee Dave!

    Congratulations on being the first Fan member of the new Board.

    I'm sure Mum & Dad are very proud!  Very pwoud indeed!

      Thanks Colin - just seen this - good to see you the other day :)

  3. Craig Samson is out of contract having only managed a handful of games for Motherwell last season....
  4. The counter on the website is updated manually - so whilst there were 20 sign ups during the meeting, they won't be added to the counter until that's done
  5. The Smisa website says there will be some form of recognition in the main stand for the fans who back the bid.
  6. Well it depends how you interpret the wording. The board sets the subscription rate and a change to that rate is (arguably) a change to the society's rules - although I get where you are coming from. And as you point out - if the members are unhappy at the decision, they can easily vote to replace the board. The second point is really more crucial - ultimately if 'future smisa board' decided to set the membership fee at a rate that was deliberately prohibitive, they would be in breach of their own rules, the spirit of SD more importantly, the laws governing CBSs. I think we agree - its pretty unlikely.
  7. Two quick points:1 - The trust is one member one vote - the membership fee is decided by the membership - so the scenario you describe could only happen if the members voted for it. 2 - the constitution of the trust (and I believe a condition of being part of SD) is that membership has to be 'affordable' and open to all. Whilst this is a bit subjective, ultimately it would protect against the situation you describe.
  8. further info: SMISA is today launching our #BuyTheBuds campaign, meaning St Mirren fans now have the chance to make sure our club can stay forever in the hands of the people who will care for it most...you, the fans. If the bid is successful, it will see Gordon Scott become the next chairman of the club and SMISA get a director on the board - with the option of majority fan ownership within the next ten years But if can only happen if the fans come up with the money. That is why SMISA is launching the #BuyTheBuds fundraising campaign this weekend, with full details on our relaunched website now.. You are also reminded of our public meeting tomorrow at 12:30pm (after the SMISA AGM at 12) in The Wynd Centre, School Wynd, Paisley, where Gordon and the SMISA committee will be taking questions on the bid. The next few weeks are a chance for us all to come together and seize our chance to write the next chapter in the history of our great club together. Read on to find out more now www.smisa.net
  9. Update from SMISA: BID FOR THE CLUB - PUBLIC MEETING ON SATURDAY As you will already know, there has been major progress of late on our joint bid with former St Mirren director Gordon Scott for the majority shareholding in St Mirren. As a result of that we are holding a public meeting on Saturday at 12:30pm in the Wynd Centre, School Wind, Paisley. Existing SMISA members are being asked to come along at noon for the trust's AGM, where we will deal with routine trust business. Non-Members should join us at 12:30pm for a presentation and Q&A on the bid, where you can put your questions to Gordon and the SMISA committee. Be aware capacity in the venue will be limited, so in the event of exceptional demand, entry will be first come, first served. See you there! More details on the NEW LOOK SMISA WEBSITE!!!! www.smisa.net #BuyTheBuds
  10. Alex Rae's view wasn't that he didn't want to play passing football or a passing game (both he and DF said they wanted to play good football, but wanted to be winners first and foremost), I think its more that he just feels there is limited value in teaching youth players to 'dink' it out from the goalie to the full back, who then 'dinks' it to the centre half, because once these youth players start playing senior games, they won't get away with that - if that's all your youth players know, they will get slaughtered in the senior game, and their confidence will get destroyed. I think he means he wants a balanced style of play, passing, but not passing for the sake of it, because that will usually get you into difficulties.
  11. AR did say at one point he always wore a short sleeved shirt growing up so no-one could call him a Jessie....so I think the coloured boots have had their day at the Paisley 2021 stadium.....
