    Co-op Supports DADSC

    We have a number of ambitious (large-scale) projects in mind - the main aim is still to get wheelchair access to at least some of the 1st Floor Function Suites, preferably by a lift but if for any reason that proves impracticable then we will consider other methods. We would also like to improve the accessible toilet arrangements for users of the Purvis Suite, and in the longer term (when DAFC is in the Premiership!!!) an additional viewing platform in the North Stand would be desirable. There will always be other smaller outlays, and anyone is welcome to attend the next DADSC meeting at 7pm on Monday 27 January in the Jock Stein Suite at EEP.

    Supporters' Council - The Future

    Long ago ....

    Supporters' Council - The Future

    The timing and administration of Supporters' Council meetings is now the responsibility of Drew Main as the club's Supporter Liaison Officer, and the notes of all meetings are still published on the club's official website.

    Supporters' Council - The Future

    @Adam101 Thanks for the offer of help. If you can send me a message with your real name and contact details I'll be in touch. TBH, in between the quarterly meetings there isn't really anything the Supporters' Council does - up to now we've just had an ad hoc group of about half-a-dozen who have a pre-meeting about a month ahead to arrange the content and speakers. You're welcome to join in and pehaps come up with some new ideas. That's all that's involved - unless you are helping at the meeting or an action point emerges. It's really up to supporters how they want to see the Council develop - there are several supporters' groups who each do their own thing and there is no desire to change that, but (I think) only the Supporters' Council offers a regular opportunity to meet and challenge the Board. I think a lot of the ideas put forward in the last few weeks can be easily incorporated into the present arrangements. But if supporters want it to become something quite different from what it is, either in style or content, eg a body with more teeth, or a completely different way of holding the meeting, eg using then there have to be volunteers willing to take it on. One thing that concerns me slightly is the idea that some fans are not attending because they don't see any benefit to themselves from what they would get out of being there. That may be true, but we should be looking at it from the other direction - ie, what benefit can we bring to the club by taking an active part in setting its direction? Surely as Pars supporters we have learned the bitter lesson of what happens when there is a disconnect between the Board and the ordinary fans.

    Supporters' Council - The Future

    Thanks for pinning this, Piracy. It would be good if anyone could chip in the occasional idea - there have been lots of good suggestions, both here and in "the other place" and we'll certainly look at all of them before arranging the next meeting. But what would be most helpful would be some new blood, who might organise things differently - we all tend to arrange things in a certain individual way, so somebody doing something completely different might be beneficial. (Maybe we should have a one-off organiser, like magazines have a celebrity editor now and then!) I'm sure Paradox is correct - many fans just want to get back to being ordinary supporters and not have to worry about the mechanics of how the club is run - I understand that, but I think it's vital to embed the Supporters' Council NOW into the way the club works. Otherwise, there is a risk that somewhere down the line, perhaps when the present BoD etc have moved on, the gaps that existed in the past between Board and Supporters may reappear. There's really no point at all in having a "supporter-owned club" if over 95% of the supporters don't want anything to do with how it's run.
