The Management Committee are reorganising the roles for the forthcoming year. The following roles remain unchanged from this year’s Committee:

Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, New Media Officer, Club Liaison Officer, UK Supporters Liaison, Overseas Liaison, Events and Travel Officer

The Management Committee are reorganising other roles accordingly:

Communications - taking the place of Media and to include social media, and member enquiries regarding Union policy (not membership packs or admin issues). The spokesperson role to be handled primarily by the Chair

Marketing - dealing with the marketing of the Union, merchandise, brand and presentation.

Membership - dealing with growing the membership, new memberships and renewals.

Youth - split from Community to deal with the growing focus on Youth including the high volume of work to follow from introducing a Youth Membership.

Anfield Regeneration – dealing with liaison with the local community over the impact of any stadium solution and the Club’s place in the locality.


The previous Direct Action role will remain as a co-opted member of the Management Committee. This reflects the current status of the Club but also recognises that Direct Action played a vital part in the voice of the Union’s members being heard and that should always remain the case.
