For some time the board of NUST have identified the need to be able to communicate more effectively with the members of NUST and the fans in general. The first of many initiatives is the new ‘Ask The Trust’ facility which allows supporters to ask relevant questions regarding the development of the Trust and any other related topics.
We will endeavour to answer as many of the questions as possible and these will then feed into a permanent FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section. The NUST board continue to work towards representing its members and the wider fanbase, with more upcoming means of interaction between the Trust board and members/supporters.
See here for a full description of our Constitution - we are basically registered as a Society run for the benefit of its members. Membership is open to all who support the aims of the Trust on a one-person one-vote basis.
Yes, the Trust intends to continue with its roadshow program. Since the inception of the Trust we have successfully held 21 roadshows all over the region. You can read about them here
If you would like to host a NUST roadshow get in touch with us by sending an email to email@example.com
We will be sending out emails as soon as dates of upcoming roadshows are confirmed and the website will have all the appropriate details as usual.
Yes, the NUST is continuing to provide the Local Achievers initiative that it set up and ran so successfully last season. During the 2009/10 season NUST provided match day tickets for several individuals and organisations that the Trust felt had achieved significantly within the community in their various areas of work.
Click on the above link for more information about our local achievers initiative and read about the successful nominees from last season as well as and how you can nominate any “local achievers” you consider deserving of match tickets.
The reasons we charge for membership are as follows :
1. The rules of a Society registered under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 means that to be a full member you have to own a fully paid up share of the Trust - these are £1 shares and each member is assigned one after they sign up.
2. Each member receives a membership pack when they sign up - this includes a certificate and membership card - this plus the postage to send them out obviously cost money.
3. We need running costs eg postage for letters / website hosting fees / Domain name fees / PO Box fees / Bulk email package fees / campaign funds etc.
All work carried out by the committee is free and no committee member is paid anything for their voluntary work
No, you can send a cheque with a completed application form which can be downloaded here
Alternatively the NUST is looking to provide matchday joining facilities so you can sign up on the day with cash or cheque and have your membership card and share certificate posted to you within the week. We will be publicising the matchday sign up facilities as soon as they are confirmed both on the website and via email.
