Jets to form Member Committee

The Newcastle Jets are pleased to announce plans to establish a new Member Committee to increase communication and consultation between the Club and its Members.

The committee will allow our Member to provide input and their feedback on a range of issues regarding the Club and our Membership program through regular and constructive discussions with Club officials.

The Member Committee was one of the ideas discussed at the Club’s Members and supporters forum in lead up to the 2013/14 season.

The committee will be made up of six Members who will represent all of the major stakeholder groups amongst our Member base.

The group will act in a consultative manner providing a range of views from different segments and groups of the Club’s Member base.

The objectives of the committee are:

-To enhance the relationship between the Club and it’s Members and providing our Members the opportunity to play a key role in helping achieve success

-To establish a direct communication forum that is structured, orderly and efficient

-To help the Club better understand issues that most affect and concern our Members

The Club will engage with the Member Committee on a range of topics including:

- Active Support & Match Day Atmosphere

-Membership packages and entitlements

-Member communications

-Match Day experience and facilities

-Merchandise

This forum will not discuss football related issues such as team performance or selection. We encourage all Members to apply for a position on the committee by emailing membership@newcastlejets.com.au by September 30 with your contact details and the reason for your application. Members will be required to attend a meeting 4 times per year (every quarter).

The minutes of each meeting will be published online. All Members will be able to propose discussion topics for future Member Committee Members by emailing membership@newcastlejets.com.au or via Twitter @JetsSupport

The Club will announce the appointment of the Member Committee and the details of the first meeting before the first home match of the 2014/15 season.
