Wonderwall, the parent organization dedicated to enabling, empowering and accelerating Minnesota United FC’s Supporters Groups, will be hosting the annual Supporters Summit on January 31, 2020 at Summit Brewing Company, inside the Administration Building. The event will begin around 6:30 PM with the program aspect of the evening commencing at 7:00 PM. As with all Wonderwall Supporters Summits, all are welcome – you do not need to be a Supporters Group member or season ticket holder to attend the event.
We're planning to have 2020 membership packages (member scarf + membership card) available for pickup at the Supporters Summit, if this changes we will announce via our social media channels and update this post.
As part of the Supporters Summit, there will be the component of elections, just as there was last year. Though not required, nominees are encouraged to attend and meet with members and non-members.
Important things to note: in order to vote for the Board of Directors, an affiliated Supporters Group membership will be required, as well as the purchase of a non-expiring voting share. All information relating to the 2020 Wonderwall Board of Directors elections, voting, voting shares etc., can be found below.
Elections will commence at 9:00 AM Central following the 2020 Supporters Summit; you do not need to be present at the Supporters Summit in order to vote. Those who have purchased a voting share will be emailed a voting link. Elections will last for seven days, closing on February 7 at 11:59 PM. Winners of the elections will be notified on February 12 and the new Board of Directors members will be announced prior to the start of the season opener on March 1.
All votes will require the purchase of a membership voting share in accordance with our bylaws. Voting shares will be sold for $25, and are available for sale on the web store. There are 500 voting shares available. In addition to a voting share, one must be a member of an affiliated Supporters Group either through holding a season ticket in the Supporters Section at Allianz Field (sections 20-24), or through the purchase of an individual membership.
Those voting in the election will be required to provide their full name, mailing address and telephone number; this is legally required for the organization and we cannot offer exceptions. Those who wish not to share this information will not be allowed to vote in the elections.
Voting shares purchased this year will not expire and will entitle the shareholder to voting rights for future years. If you purchased a share in the 2019 elections, your voting share is still valid and there is no need to purchase another one. Each shareholder is entitled to one vote annually, regardless of the number of voting shares purchased.
The money collected from voting shares will continue to be used to further the mission of Wonderwall and their Supporters Groups, including to provide funding for supporters groups’ initiatives and funding match day components such as flags and tifo.
We will not be selling voting shares at the Supporters Summit, shares and memberships will need to be purchased prior to the end of the event, via the Wonderwall Web Store.
