Minutes of Bury Mountaineering Club Meeting

Minutes of Bury Mountaineering Club Meeting: Weds 4th July 2018

Vice Chairman Mike Slater stood in for chairman Mike...

Following last month's AGM, John Brandon has taken over from Matt Fawthrop as club treasurer. They've arranged to meet one evening for a 'handover' discussion.

Agreed that the authorised signatories for the club bank account will remain unchanged.

For the moment, payments out of the club account will continue to be actioned by Matt.

For payments of money related to club events, eg weekends away, Matt proposed use of new WhatsApp app 'Padoq'. Free to use, but software provider takes 2% of all payments.

Generally felt by the meeting to be a good idea. Matt will look into it further.
