The Celtic Trust had to spring into action over the weekend, earlier than first anticipated. The club has notified shareholders this year’s AGM will be a month earlier than last year.
Celtic’s AGM in 2020 came in December, the date hasn’t been confirmed for this year’s but it will likely be in November.
The Celtic Trust are looking for shareholders to sign a ‘share resolution requisition form’ to ensure their ‘Governance resolution’ is tabled at the AGM.
‘This resolution is designed to improve the governance of Celtic PLC by ensuring the independence of the Non Executive Directors and by protecting the rights of smaller shareholders.
If you’re a shareholder outwith the Trust and want to support the resolution, please download the form for Governance Resolution here and return it to the Celtic Trust – either by scanning and emailing it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting to us at PO Box 502, 103 Byres Road, Glasgow G11 5HW. It’s urgent you do this as quickly as possible.
The Celtic Trust and the board have not seen eye to eye on many things lately. They slammed Ian Bankier for being out of touch as he put forward Celtic’s accounts in September.
The group try their best to hold the people in power at Celtic to account. Right now, there’s a huge chasm between the support and the people running our club.
There’s a lack of accountability and people who were in charge of Celtic’s massive collapse last season are allowed to move forward unimpeached. The running of the club over the summer and the concerning exit of our new Chief Exec Dom McKay after only 72 days is cause for serious concern.
It’s vital we have groups like the Trust who are challenging what the club is doing and also trying to build on their shares to have a bigger say down the road.
