We aren't "owners".

We make donations.

Who owns the Society?

Good question.

I honestly don't know.

People who think they part-own the club in any sort of issue-specific way, are ones for the watching

This is it. Reminds me of John Brown demanding to see the deeds or whatever he was shouting.

Although, if they are Society members, they are perfectly entitled to raise a specific issue and have it dicsussed and addressed if they garner sufficient support.

I’ve got 20 shares so presumably I own the club, any questions?

A few years ago that's what it cost Craig Whyte to buy Rangers, just the one monthly payment so i think you are being done

The Society owns the controlling shareholding in the club.

The Society is it's members.

It's not complicated.

IIRC, at the moment, the members of the society vote members onto the society board, who in turn select members onto the Motherwell board but do not have enough members on the Motherwell board to dictate the overall direction the board takes without support from other board members.

I believe this is the correct way as short term knee jerk reactions could put the long term intrests of the club in jeopardy.  

The society board members who vote against the wishes of the membership know that they would be doing so with a chance that they would lose their position the next season, so would do so reluctantly but anyone who votes to please other members to keep their position ahead of the betterment of the club is the wrong person for the job in my view.

Does anyone have any details of the proposed foreign currency collection, tried to participate previously but there was no evidence of it, it seems to be getting pushed again?
