The Everton Fans' Forum is one of the initiatives designed to help bring fans closer to the Club.
The Forum meets once a month and discusses a whole host of topics important to supporters, including ticketing, traffic management, and wider communication issues.
The representative group - chaired by Season Ticket holder Tony Bott - are able to air their views to members of Everton's executive management team, providing valuable feedback and ideas.
Everton's Fans' Forum was launched to give supporters a sense of ownership and participation in the Club.
It has been around for some time but it was revamped in January 2011 to further involve supporters in helping to shape the decision-making process.
The group act as a sounding board to the Club, providing honest and candid feedback on the issues that matter to supporters.
Everton Chief Executive Robert Elstone, said: "The Club has made a longstanding commitment to getting closer to its fans and has introduced a series of initiatives that allow us to listen and hold us to account, to respond. The Fans' Forum is exactly that."
The recruitment process was reviewed at the end of the 2011/12 season and members of the Forum will now serve a maximum of a three-year tenure.
Each year, four new members will be recruited and eight members will remain on the Forum to ensure the Club is getting feedback from a cross-section of the Everton fanbase, whilst maintaining a level of consistency and quality.
Details of the next application period will be announced on evertonfc.com in due course.
