PASB Statement

PASB Statement

The first internal meeting of the Plymouth Argyle Supervisory Board took place before the recent home game against York City.

The group is the initiative of Argyle owner James Brent with the aim of giving fans a chance to have a say in the running of the club and to keep a watchful eye on the financial position at Home Park.

The 12 places on the PASB consist of six independent fans and six from the various supporters groups.
They issued the following statement:

The PASB held its first internal meeting before the home match against York City.
The meeting, which was attended by all but one of the twelve members, was very constructive.

The problems associated with the flawed election process were noted.
It was however felt that the PASB now needs a period of stability to establish its format and scope, so it was agreed to hold the next elections at the end of the 2013/14 season, by which point the PASB should agree its future election process and how to include pay-on-the-day supporters.

The objectives of the PASB were discussed, with the priority agreed to be scrutiny of the club board's decision making, and being a critical friend to the club.
The PASB should also act as a conduit between the Club and the various fan groups. The terms of reference adopted by the Bradford City Supporters Board, which were drafted with the help of Supporters Direct, were discussed.
It was agreed that the PASB would form its remit based on combining the objectives presented at the first meeting with the Club with the core of the Bradford text providing the means by which the objectives can be achieved.

The PASB discussed whether it should have a Chair or a spokesperson. It was agreed that initially the PASB would have a spokesperson as the liaison between the Club and the PASB, and Ed Shillabeer was duly elected to fill the role.

The situation at the Club was then discussed as a matter of high priority and the PASB agreed on the importance of transparency on finances.
It was thus agreed that a meeting would be sought as soon as possible with the Club to put forward a number of questions with the aim of clarifying the club's current financial position, and encouraging the highest possible level of transparency between the Club and supporters.

The next internal PASB meeting was agreed to be held on 12th January before the Morecambe game.
