It had been hoped over the past few days that the current division within the Board of the Brisbane Lions would be resolved without the need to pursue an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Football Club. Disappointingly, our communications with both parties leave us with little hope of a resolution in the near future.
As such the Williams/Power/Matthews ticket has decided to immediately progress with plans to formally pursue an EGM to allow members to exercise their voting rights and end the deadlock.
Their reasoning for doing so can be found here.
We at The Lion's Roar are not advocating support for either ticket in this dispute but, in the absence of an amicable resolution, we believe calling for an EGM is now the most practical solution for ending the division.
In order for this to occur, your formally signed and submitted request is now required.
Please note that this form does not constitute a vote for a particular candidate. It is simply a request to fast track proceedings for members to vote for or against the Williams/Power ticket and restore board stability as soon as possible. For more information on this, please read the Frequently Asked Questions.
If you are convinced, like we are, that calling for an EGM is the way forward we implore you to:
- Read our FAQ to ensure you’re fully informed
- Understand how to fill out the required Requisition form by reading these instructions
- Download, print and complete the Requisition form from here and post it to:
P.O. Box 3819
Victoria Point West
We must stress that every Requisition form submitted is vital to the success of this process and urge every voting member to exercise their rights at what is a crucial and historical moment for the Brisbane Lions.
Please also continue to spread the word to friends and family to get involved in shaping the future of this great club.
