“Membership Matters” is a focal point of this year’s board. We want our members to feel valued and want to improve every members’ experience. Another focus will be to continue to increase membership. We have a target of a 20% increase in membership over last year. For those members in areas where there is not a local chapter, we are planning special activities for you so that you feel a part of the Spurs Canada experience.
We have numerous exclusive events planned for members this year including; a year opening/membership party, fantasy league, draws through out the year for merchandise and other special events/plans in the works for the year.
At the AGM an approval was given to for a new board role as Podcaster. We are looking forward to this increase in communications.
The board chapter leaders are in the process of meeting with our partner pubs. We are negotiating for even more benefits for our membership.
The past and current board understand that the ticketing process for 2016/17 was difficult. We have voiced our opinions to THFC and are asking for updates on new processes for the coming year at Wembley.
We also understand that many of our Spurs Canada members will be heading to: New Jersey, Orlando and Nashville for the THFC summer tour. We are in contact with our American THFC chapters and will update our web site and social media feeds with events at these locations.
We will continue to email our members with updates, post on our web site, Facebook page and Twitter feeds.
Welcome to Spurs Canada 2017/18
On Behalf of the Board
Chairman- Spurs Canada
