All Dons Trust members (aged 16 and above) have now been sent their email invitations to join the Trust Webjam. Emails were sent in batches, between 5 and 17 September, to the email addresses held for you on the Dons Trust database.
Nearly 400 members have now registered and are taking part. There have been exclusive discussions, debates, polls and questions to board members on the site. Discussions have so far included the new stadium, board member activities, the redactions to minutes, ethical sponsorship and thoughts on the Trust Webjam itself.
There are also videos that were taken at the SGM in August, slides from the Academy that were presented to a recent Dons Trust Board meeting, and the summaries of board meetings now appear on the site a month ahead of appearing publicly on this website.
The Trust’s election process is now also underway. This year the Elections Steering Group (ESG) will be using the Trust Webjam during the election campaign for members to ask the candidates questions and as part of the election process.
So if you’re a Trust member and want to be involved, be informed and be heard, you need to register for the site as soon as possible.
How do I register and sign up?
The email inviting you to join will have come from firstname.lastname@example.org and was sent to the email address held for you on the Trust database. If you can’t find the email in your inbox please check your junk and spam folders as, although it has come from the webmaster email address, it is being sent via the Webjam server so may have been filtered by your email provider.
We are also aware that some work email addresses are being blocked by the firewalls of those companies. If you have a personal email address too and would like to be involved, please let us have that by emailing email@example.com so we can resend the invite.
The invite to register email has a link to visit the site and register. Members were sent the Acceptable Use Policy and the User Registration Guide on 19 August via an email from the Dons Trust.
It is important to follow the registration guide when first registering as it is a little different from other social media sites. Your username should be your FirstnameSurname (ie JaneLonsdale). We are doing this because we are trying to be as transparent as possible and to make the site welcoming, safe and respectful.
Any problems or if you need more help
If you cannot find the emails please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want any help in signing up, please call in at the Dons Trust kiosk on a home matchday or email Jane Lonsdale.
