Questions to the Board

I originally posted this on another thread but the more I think about it the more I'd like to hear the board's view on some of these questions. So I thought I'd start a new thread and perhaps others can add questions they'd like answered and I wonder if @traceyhibs would be so kind as to share a collated list (I'm happy to put it together into one list) with her board colleagues? Not expecting point by point answers (although it would be nice) but even some general feedback on these would be welcome, or at least taking our views into account in future club communications?

I think the trouble we have is that there's so much of this cliched 'the board doesn't match the manager's ambition' empty rhetoric that no-one ever asks good questions of the board's performance. Challenges I'd suggest are valid (not saying they're doing a bad job on all of these, just that I think they're valid to ask) include:
  • Are they doing enough to support and promote HSL?
  • Should they be developing a parallel donation stream that's not tarnished by whatever nonsense has been thrown at HSL?
  • What are they doing to minimise off field expenditure to free up more funds for playing staff?
  • What level of cash reserves do we carry and are we too risk averse in that respect?
  • Does HTC truly represent value for money or would renting facilities be more cost effective?
  • What are they doing to attract external 'investment' (donations)?
There are probably others but ironically there's never a sensible discussion about board performance because of the shrillness of the anti-board brigade.

@traceyhibs Could you bring up the possibility of the club being able to stream the development squad games live. Not expecting the same quality as match day, but someone from the club just recording from the sidelines would give the fans a chance to watch the young lads. I know there are highlights, the full game on Hibs TV and Youtube would probably get a decent amount of interest.

This was actually brought up this evening at the Working Together Meeting and we aren’t allowed to show the games live. It’s an SPFL ruling. The games that have been put on Hibs TV so far haven’t gained too much interest but I think once people get to know that the full game and highlights are available on there it will start to gain more viewers.

Any news on this? Beginning to wonder if other board members want to forget it

Just had a quick glance of the questions for a refresh - some require input from different departments in the club (Finance, Recruitment etc).

A response will be coming.

Thanks, it seemed to be ready and just awaiting posting on the web

Hi,

It was ready but may be getting some additions to it so hoping to have it up on the website by the end of the week.

The additions are issues that have come towards us since.

Thanks

Another week has passed? Struggling to see why this can’t be done.

Fair shout but lots going on at the minute.

I’m not in the door yet but I can see the club resources are stretched - the Zebra Finance replacement, 3 games in 8 days, Split fixtures, release of tickets, unacceptable conduct and Marvin support.

It will come.
I get it may be busy, how this stops a document being uploaded is beyond me. Tracey it seemed had been told it was ready to go a few weeks ago. More likely things that certain board members don’t want to say or disclose certain things

I’ll be honest - It’s important but it’s not urgent. It’s about working down the list - however the longer this gets delayed for other priorities superseding this it will then become urgent.

Not urgent for who?

It’s been well over a month. Surely having beaten hearts at tynecastle is the best time to come out and give answers people maybe don’t want to here or will use to have a go at the club or even just say no comment to particular questions. There’s always going to be more important things to do, as the saying goes the silence is deafening.

Tend to agree. If there's some unpalatable answers in there so be it. Now would be as good a time as any to deliver any bad news

That would have been the best time but unfortunately we have had some things come towards the club following the game so again time being used to sort that.

Agree it’s important and we will continue to push for it to be put up on the website as soon as possible.

There is surely enough resources to deal with putting some articles on the website ? Feels like if we leave it long enough it will go away. Not by fans reps but by rest of the board.
