If you want to help to shape the future of your Football Club, then there is no better way than to join the West Ham United Supporter Advisory Board (SAB).
In line with the club's policy of listening to those who matter most, the SAB was originally set-up last season to give fans the opportunity to have their say on the Hammers.
Launched in May 2011, the SAB gives supporters a meangingful voice on the following topics, plus much, much more:
· Retail - kit design and merchandise
· Marketing - branding and emails
· Media - online and publications
· Ticketing - season tickets and membership
· Matchday experience - everything related to the big game
SAB members will also have the opportunity to meet the people that make the big decisions at the club, including Board members and first-team management and players.
It is your West Ham United. You set the agenda for the things that matter most to you.
The existing SAB members will continue their important role during the 2012/13 season, but the club is eager to open the opportunity up to new members to ensure a fully representative cross-section of the supporter base.
The club would welcome those who have plenty to say. All input is welcome, providing it is constructive and aimed at improving the lot of all Hammers fans. Applications from all walks of life, whatever the gender or age, are wanted, including international members.
The only two criteria is that you must support the club and must have a relationship with the club, whether that be a Season Ticket holder or Academy member. Key personnel from the club will be made available to address all areas covered by the SAB.
Those interested in joining the SAB must potentially be available to attend quarterly meetings and be regularly contactable via email/phone. The selection process will take into account each individual's application and the overall balance of the Board. To get involved, fans must be nominated by five others who are not related and also have a Season Ticket or Academy membership.
This is a genuine opportunity for fans to influence the key decisions that will shape the future of West Ham United.
Anyone interested should download an application form here and send it in by Friday 17 August 2012 . Completed forms should be posted to Esha Chopra, West Ham United, Boleyn Ground, Green Street, London, E13 9AZ.
