1. Attendance and Apologies    

As noted above. It was agreed that the Councillors need not attend as the main purpose of this meeting was to elect new office bearers.


2. Office Bearers

Douglas Waddell’s position as treasurer is vacant.  Kate Rosindale had expressed an interested at the recent AGM. After discussing this with the group, her appointment was proposed by Val Bradbury and seconded by Richard Copson.  Kate Rosindale was duly appointed Treasurer of the Kippford Association.

Kate’s first mandate is to inform the Bank, and have any necessary paperwork attended to.  As part of this process we have asked that she activate online banking to allow us regular access to our account.  Kate will also remove all current signatories and add new ones.

We agreed that four signatories would suffice:  These being Kate Rosindale, Richard Copson, Alan Dingle, David Jamieson.  Any two will be required to sign a cheque.

Chairman:  Alan Dingle wishes to continue in his role as vice-chair and proposed David Jamieson as chairman.  David discussed this with the group and said he would be willing to take on the role, however he was keen to continue as hall manager.  Alan offered to support David in the hall management role as required.  David also currently undertakes the role of secretary, but a new person would be sought, and co-opted in to the committee.

Alan therefore proposed David Jamieson as chair and Mike Riding seconded it.  There were no objections from other members and David was elected as Chairperson of the Kippford Association.

Alan Dingle continued as vice-chair, with no objections raised.


3. AOB

Details were discussed on the New Years’ Day celebration in the hall.  Joanne and Val would make arrangements and call on others as necessary.  Kevin will also come along on the morning of the 1st January to assist with setup.
