To summarise, the sole purpose of our Advisory Board is to meet monthly to review and assess the performance and strategic direction of the football club, while ensuring there is open, transparent and regular engagement on key matters impacting all aspects of the club.
It also builds on the memorandum of understanding that was signed between Swindon Town and TrustSTFC, and it continues the commitment from the club to maintain open and honest engagement with its fanbase.
The STFC Advisory Board meets every month and there is an opportunity for fans to raise questions via TrustSTFC and the Supporters Club.
The meetings present an ideal opportunity for supporters to share feedback, ideas and suggestions to the club’s management team, so we encourage everyone to get in touch with either of the supporter groups.
