The Highlanders supporters board is a democratic not-for-profit society of supporters, committed to strengthening the communities’ support of the club. It will be legally registered and regulated, and can hold assets like a company can. This means any money raised or shares bought would belong to all members equally, and not be held by individuals. Owner, Alex D. Campbell, has relinquished 30% of his shares to this new Supporters Board.

Voting will be carried on shortly after nominations have been submitted.
