HC Košice Community Forum is a communicational platform which was created after the Steelworkers declared to transform themselves into a community club.
Through this platform, the club approaches a wide community not only in Košice, but in the whole region, and tries to create a relationship based on a transparent communication and cooperation.
The regular meetings constitute a foundation stone of the forum, where the club informs its members on the visions, strategies, goals, plans, results and progress achieved. The period between the meetings is used for the interactive electronic communication.
Among the members of the forum are the representatives of the region and town, municipal and state institutions, schools, media, representatives of the business sector, and all fans, who want to help the most successful club in the Slovak history to progress.
Main Goals of HC Košice Community Forum:
1. To raise awareness of the community and to mobilize the active members of the forum (regular meetings and communication).
2. To create a space for networking.
3. To create long-term partnerships that will ultimately bring the club a financial and non-financial support (products, media landscape, ticket sales).
