The Heart of Midlothian Shareholders' Association
The Heart of Midlothian Shareholders' Association came into being in its present form in 1979 and exists to advance the interests of Heart of Midlothian FC, to express and represent the views of the shareholders of Heart of Midlothian FC and to provide a social forum for Association members and their guests.
The office bearers and members of the Committee of The Association maintain a regular contact with senior representatives of Heart of Midlothian FC, and the Association also actively interacts with other groups that share our ambitions for Hearts.
We have one representative on the Hearts Youth Development Committee, one on the Hearts Supporters' Trust and two attend the G10 Supporters' Group, where representatives of the club meet with the supporters' groups (The Shareholders' Association, the Supporters' Trust and the Federation of Hearts Supporters' Clubs).
Members are kept up to date with developments from these meetings at our regular monthly dinners that are held throughout the season.
The Association has around three-hundred and fifty members, most live in Scotland but there are also members from further afield in England, Italy, Norway, New Zealand, The Bahamas, and even a few in Leith! All Hearts shareholders, wherever they are, are welcome to join. We will be delighted to hear from you.
The Association issues a monthly newsletter during the season to keep members up to date with what is happening and also has a website www.hmsa.org.uk with information and pictures from past meetings.

The Heart of Midlothian Supporters' Trust aims to unite all who have an abiding passion for the club and is a platform for all Hearts supporters to have a say on the issues that affect the club, fans and the communities that it serves.
It is completely independent of the club and is non-profit making. Regardless of who the custodians of HMFC may be, the fans are the lifeblood and the only constant. The Trust will enable that constant to make a major contribution to the future success of Heart of Midlothian Football Club.
