General Business

The 2017 AGM asked the Committee to propose a policy on WMC donations. Drawing on the Constitution (5.2) and after seeking a legal opinion we will recommend that the 2018 AGM accepts the following conditions as a guideline for WMC donations:

  • Proposals for WMC donations must be notified as a notice of motion to the AGM, as set out in the Rules (5.2).
  • The notice of motion should include the recipient organisation, the amount to be donated and the reason for the donation.
  • Donations should go to registered charities which foster group running and/or walking activities in the Wellington region, catering for all ages.
  • Donations will be decided on by the AGM, as set out in the Rules
  • The total of donations in any year should not exceed 5% of the WMC funds, as shown in the 30 September year-end financial statement.

The meeting closed at 7.00pm, with thanks for participation.
Next meeting: 17 September 2018
