5. Preparation of statutory accounts for 2020
The trustees propose, as last year, the appointment of Tom Futter as an independent person to prepare the statutory accounts for 2020, 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 can have a maximum of 10 trustees: up to 7 elected by the members and 3 appointed by the board. Our Articles require one third of the elected trustees to retire each year by rotation. There are currently 4 elected trustees. We have determined that Tina Leonard is due to retire by rotation. Tina is willing to be re-elected.
Carey Newson was co-opted onto the board during the year and is willing to be put forward for election.
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
