LDWA London AGM 2017 minutes, and Expenses Policy

Update on 2017 AGM and LDWA London Expenses Policy

A number of important administrative matters were settled in March 2017.   Read on for more details..


2017 AGM

2016-17 AGM and new committee

London LDWA held its AGM at Pizza Express, 99 High Holborn on Thursday 9 March 2017. It wasn't an ideal venue, sharing the basement with bemused diners and challenging acoustics, but we were all well-behaved and completed the business without fuss.

As well as the usual officers' reports, we had updates on the two new initiatives for 2017 - the Capital Challenge to be held on 1 April and the Silk River festival scheduled for September. The meeting also approved a new expenses policy.

The following officers were re-elected: Peter Aylmer (chair), Adam Dawson (Walks secretary), Keith Lane (webmaster), and Gordon Parker (Founders co-ordinator). Pete Colley was elected as treasurer. The meeting thanked Douglas Robinson and Roderick Smith, retiring after three years' valuable service as secretary and treasurer respectively.

This however means that the committee lacks a secretary. The committee has the power to co-opt a person to this position, so if any member would like to help the London group in this way, please contact Peter Aylmer at london.chair@ldwa.org.uk

Expenses Policy

The new expenses policy referred to in the previous section was developed to resolve any uncertainties in respect of "eligible" expenses incurred on LDWA's behalf.
