    FORAS membership would generally be very wary of outside investment. It would be very difficult to convince a majority of the membership to trust someone coming in from the outside. There has been rumblings in recent months that we may need to find ways to get more investment but I'm not even sure its legally possible under our current structure, due to the one person one vote nature of co-ops, it would be a massive change.

    Its one person one vote at Rovers too so whatever change is mooted will need to be accepted.
