Earlier this week the KFCSA Committee was advised by the Club’s Supporters Liason Officer, Andrew Miller, that the Company Secretary of Kilmarnock FC Ltd, Michael Johnston, who remains a Director, would like to attend the AGM this Saturday and speak to the fans.
Club Directors, including Mr Johnston, have attended recent AGM’s.
On this occasion, the Committee felt that if Michael Johnston attended then, in turn, a representative of the group seeking to call an EGM should also be present in the interests of fairness and balance.
That group indicated that they felt that the appropriate forum for any discussion and debate would be the anticipated EGM and would not be sending any representative on Saturday. However, they specifically stated that they would have no objection to Michael Johnston attending on Saturday and taking part in a Question and Answer session which was being considered by the Committee.
After detailed consideration, the Committee have decided to agree to Mr Johnston’s request but on the strict understanding that his attendance is only for a Question and Answer session.
The Committee appreciated that there would be criticism however this sensitive matter was dealt with; on balance, it was felt that fans, who may not be shareholders, will now have the opportunity of asking their own questions of Mr Johnston.
It is hoped, and expected, that the Question and Answer session can be conducted in a civil and courteous manner regardless of differing views and opinions.
The AGM is scheduled to start at 1pm on Saturday 25th June in the Park Suite at Rugby Park and all supporters are welcome to attend.
