Having watched the video's, it seems the meeting was poorly attended and the questions to the board were insubstantial. What surprised me was the level of commercial sponsorship which I understand is 230k for the current season, growth on last year, but not as much as I had expected. It shows that there is room for further contributions from supporters and sponsors if revenue-generating ideas can be supported.

It may have seemed poorly attended but something approaching 1000 were apparently viewing. If that number is true then I think that’s pretty impressive.
I agree on the insubstantial level of questions, but I’ve noticed that an element of media management exists with all these meetings, probably to ensure nothing too contentious gets asked. It is also a shame that with so many watching, that in this technological age the Club could not have had a facility for viewing supporters to ask a question.
Overall though, I was very impressed with the quality of the speakers, with particular mention to James Rowberry for providing an excellent insight of his philosophy to team management, also for delaying his long trip to Colchester just to attend.

Agree with your statement 100%.
This meeting could have and should have been arranged for next week during as we don't have a game.

I was there last night. I wouldn't say it was poorly attended. About similar numbers to open meetings in the past, I'd say.
Overall, I thought it was excellent.
Good to hear from the manager & the sporting director - and Kelly, the head of safeguarding, gave a really impressive insight into such an important role.
Great to hear Nigel say the club would post a profit for last season. That'll be four successive annual profits - how many clubs in L2 have done that, particularly with the last two being in a pandemic?
We all had information sheets on our seats, which answered a lot of questions and is probably why questions from the floor might have sounded a bit 'tame'.
Really enjoyed it.
Apologies for being positive. ;-)

Would it be possible for you post a copy of said document on this thread for those that could not make it so they can also read it.

Thanks in advance

I did also notice the order in which he put those clubs - Swansea, Villa, Liverpool and Fulham. This is my precise order of those players' importance to County.
Perhaps I'm reading too much into it.

No problem sir, I am sure some one will come along and post a copy up, unless of course all attendee's had to sign a NDA.
