Minutes of Bury Mountaineering Club Meeting

Minutes of Bury Mountaineering Club Meeting: Weds 5th September 2018

JB now fully 'up to speed' as Treasurer following a meeting with Matt, and has visibility of payments into MOB bank a/c.

Agreed that preferred method of payment(eg of subs, or for club trips) is online direct into the club a/c rather than by cash or cheque.

PayPal was suggested as alternative way of paying. No decision taken.

It was proposed by JB, and agreed at this meeting, that from now on, for 'normal' UK based weekend meets, the organiser's accommodation will be paid from the club a/c. Once only per person per calendar year. Policy to be reviewed if any controversy arises over which meets qualify. 

Discussion about spending some of club funds on equipment for members' use. No decision taken.
