15th AGM of the AAJLR Association

24 March 2018
Treasurers Report
Richard Abraham
  1. With cheques received prior to this trip we currently have £74.05 in our account. However I also have £200 for the Disco. Added to which will be any subscriptions paid here plus the proceeds of the raffle this evening.

  2. Monies are held in a simple Nationwide Treasurers Book account which produces about a couple of pence a year interest; details are recorded on a spreadsheet and there is no legal requirement for audit. In the past I've distributed copies at this meeting but I stopped that from last year, instead offering to email the accounts to any member who would like to see them; to date no-one has asked for a copy but please let me know if you would like one, and I'll get it to you next week. After this weekend I will send an updated one to Ken for adding to the website.

  3. ‘Shop’ items (plaque and lapel pin badges) are available from Jim. For those who are unaware we buy the badges for £2 each and sell them for £5; the surplus going to our chosen charity. Ties are out of stock and my endeavours to seek replacements have met with the problem of high costs. Added to which we should need to order a large quantity to keep the price down as much as possible. It is questionable whether we would be able to sell that number. Your comments and suggestions would be welcomed.

  4. We have circulated envelopes and if you are paying your annual subscription, buying shop items or making a donation would you please use those envelopes, marking it clearly with your name and for what the money is intended. This cuts down the likelihood of money going astray, or of my not being able to work out from whom it derived.

  5. The cost of the buffet – for those staying elsewhere to this hotel – must be paid direct to the Min-Y-Mor.

  6. Charities – since 2007 we have supported a number of military charities, donations going to Help for Heroes, the Army Benevolent Fund, St Dunstan’s, SSAFA Forces Help plus three donations to Outward Bound Wales Mountain Rescue. However to date our main charity has been Combat Stress to which we have sent a total of £5,342.87; £550.00 since the last reunion.

    At previous meetings I've provided a list of military charities and sought proposer and seconder of each. As you are all aware of those and possibly others I think the best way to decide where our charitable giving goes in 2018-2019 is to invite suggestions from you. If proposed and seconded then we'll make our decision by the usual show of hands.
Any Other Business
  1. As many of you know we hold other gatherings throughout the year – to date most have been held in London. The annual St Fagg’s Day Luncheon this year is on Thursday 5 April, in the Civil Service Club, Great Scotland Yard. The Joint AAJLR/ICCY Luncheon will most likely be in November. Both of these excellent occasions are arranged by John Sabini (john.sabini@btopenworld.com) and if anyone would like to be kept informed about either event please let John have your e-mail address and/or contact numbers.

Addendum to Treasurer's Report
Following the AGM weekend the accounts now stand at £679.05 of which £78.00 is specifically for Combat Stress (from the sale of badges and the generosity of members), therefore in the near future I shall send the charity a cheque for around £500.
