SMISA Member's Discretionary Pot

Every quarter we hold a ballot for our members which allows them to decide were £2 of their subscriptions can be spent. We take suggestions for project ideas from the Club and memberbase and then each quarter these are voted on. The winning projects are then able to be carried out. Below you can see a list of the previous ballots and the results.

2016 Ballots

1st Ballot - September 2016
Raised Platform

We are proposing to make the full £8,500 available to the club to cover as much as they need to complete the platform – however we would like the members to decide what should happen with however much of that is left over.

Option 1
Make £8,500 available for the disabled platform and put any leftover sum into the St Mirren youth academy budget

43% of the vote with 325 votes

Option 2
Make £8,500 available for the disabled platform and keep any leftover sum in the SMISA £2 pot for spending at a future date.

57% of the vote with 430 votes
