Activities to report[edit | edit source]

  • Accountants:
    • returned signed Letter of Engagement with proof of IDs/addresses (thanks SV & MP!)
    • unfortunately this was too late to meet the Companies House deadline, meaning we will incur a fine of at least £100 when they're submitted
    • arranging meeting for early September to go through accounting records
  • Solicitors:
    • Chased Diana on both the charity commission response and the 2009 Fundraising Agreement
    • She had a case conference with the partner on Tuesday - expecting to hear from her imminently
    • I have asked for a quote for the 2010 Fundraising Agreement
  • Bankers:
    • Went into Northampton branch and discussed change of signatories form. As advised, printed off the AGM minutes and the Companies House form for TH's retirement and posted. Awaiting response.
  • Business cards
    • Thinking we were going to meet in person, I ordered ones for SV, MP and TD to come to my home so I could bring them along, as this was cheaper. They've now arrived and I've forwarded them onto each individual.
