Re: ECF Finance meeting 2018

From some of the early items: There were a couple of minor changes to the minutes from the AGM. There was some criticism of the lack of advanced notice of the removal of 3yr membership. The accounts are subject to review, but the figures are better then expected. There was discussion as to whether o...

Re: ECF Finance meeting 2018

There was a lot of discussion on the International budget. A motion was passed along the lines of "Council requests the International Director provides a more thorough breakdown of the costs for the International teams at the Olympiad (appearance fees, travel etc)" Obviously it would be unfair to pu...

Re: ECF Finance meeting 2018

Item 9 soundly defeated on hand vote. Gone to card vote so there's a record of who voted which way.

Hopefully all Gold Members will have been sent an email today, through the ECF Office (many thanks to Andrew), from myself and Roger Emerson as Gold Members Reps. Please do take a minute or 2 to read it and let us know your views.

Re: No Andrew

I'm not a frequent visitor to this forum, but I am involved in helping to organise the British in Hull. I see in one post the lack of a social programme is mentioned.
