TJF Elections 2024

The Jags Foundation

The Jags Foundation is nothing without its members. It is vitally important that our leadership group is elected and accountable to our members. That is why we hold director elections, ahead of each Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The TJF Board consists of 9 members, elected on rotation over a three-year period.

There are four vacancies in the 2024 elections, 3 of which are for a maximum three-year term and one of which is for a maximum one-year term.

The role of TJF Board member

The role of a TJF Board member is a varied one. First and foremost, we work together to represent our members’ views and interests, and to help the Club better understand and improve the fan experience for them and others.

Having a fan-led leadership group that represents the diversity of the Firhill faithful is therefore really important to us. We engage regularly with the Club Board, staff and volunteers to put fan priorities at the heart of what they do.

Our big focus for the 2024-25 season is going to be growing our fundraising base, so that we can provide even more support to the Club than we do at the moment.

To achieve that, we’re going to need motivated and proactive people who can help us grow the membership, organise successful fan events, and mobilise other fundraising initiatives. This requires new ideas and a can-do attitude and the ability to work well with the wider team.

TJF, as one of the two trustees of the PTFC Trust, also has certain responsibilities representing the majority shareholding at Partick Thistle, including under the Club-Trust Agreement. We are, jointly with The Jags Trust, custodians of our fan-owned Club, and we scrutinise the Club Board’s major financial and strategic decisions.
