The club is extremely proud of the fact that two members of the Board of Directors are elected by the club’s membership for two-year terms. Current member-elected representative Ben Allan’s two-year term expires on 30 November, 2011. He has indicated his intention to seek a further term as a member-elected representative.

Kate Grieve is the second of the two member-elected representatives. Her term expires on 30 November, 2012.

The ballot will be overseen by Computershare, which has conducted the club’s annual poll for a member-elected director since 2007. Voting club members will receive all information on the election directly from the Fremantle Football Club after it is posted on or about Monday 24 October, 2011.

Voting will be done on-line, with a provision for those voting club members without internet access to call a phone number and have the ballot papers posted to them. Full details of the election procedures and important dates will be posted on fremantlefc.com.au as details come to hand.
