Motions for FoLS AGM 2017:

Motion 1: 

The Friends of Levenshulme Station annual membership fee for 2017-2018 will be set at £1.00 per member.

Proposed: Ian Ford, Seconded: John Brown

Notes: the following notes are an explanation only and do not form part of the motion.

a. This isn’t about money – the few quid will doubtless be useful to cover small items we currently rely on individual generosity for but the issue is about sorting out our membership.

b. We currently have a mailing list but no formal membership. The current officers want as many people to be involved as possible and want to keep an open list for everyone with any interest and to continue to welcome anyone interested to our meetings. However we believe that we do need a formal membership who can vote to elect officers and on any policy matters.

c. Our constitution requires us to consider a membership fee every year – which has always been set at £0.00. We thought the easiest way to list actual members was to have nominal membership fee – the members are simply those who have paid.
