Re: [edlug] Next meeting

Well Teeth's the treasurer, if it's alright with people I can do the secretary bit until someone better come along. Our convener is around somewhere but I've not seen her at recent meetings. Is Meg Pike still around?

As I recall, the last time I set up an account for a society we didn't
need a constitution, just minutes of a meeting of the society in which
it was decided to set up the bank account (they had a form to use to
take the minutes on).  I think that we did need officers, and of course
account holders...  These may imply some kind of constitution, but I
don't think we need necessarily either discuss it or write it down...

Canditates for the Presidential Elections may queue over there --> :-).

You need a convener, a secretary and a treasurer. The treasurer is the principal account
holder. There must be a minute of a meeting kept which shows the agreement of those
people to their positions. Each officer needs to supply a sample signature to the bank as
generally any two of the three is required to sign mandates. I don't think you need to
supply a formal constitution to the bank. At least I don't remember supplying one before
when opening a treasurer account.
