5. Preparation of statutory accounts for 2019

The trustees propose, as last year, the appointment of Thomas Futter as an independent person to prepare the statutory accounts for 2019, without an audit or Independent Examination. (Under charity and company regulations, LCON would be required to arrange an audit if its income was above £1m or if 10% of the members wanted one. The threshold for an Independent Examination is an income of £25,000.)

6. Retirement and Election of Trustees

LCON’s Board has a maximum of 10 trustees. We can have up to 7 elected trustees and our Articles require one third of them to retire each year. There are currently 5 elected trustees. We have determined that Alison Hill (Chivers) and Brenda Boardman will retire by rotation. They are both willing to be re-elected. Nominations have been sought to fill vacancies. 

The trustees are also able to recruit another 2 trustees by appointment and have authority to co-opt trustees between AGMs.

7. Any other business

Close of meeting:  9.30pm
