ALISS Finance Jennie Grimshaw presented the draft accounts for 2009/10This showed that ALISS continued to maintain a firm financial basis. John Helms had been appointed as a financial adviser to transfer the accounts to an electronic format and ensure compliance with tax liabilities. After reviewing the accounts he advised that ALISS registered with HM revenue and operated as a mutual society . The latter required a change of the constitution which in the event of the winding up of the group would cause remaining funds to be distributed amongst ALISS members. This change to the constitution was debated at the AGM and agreed by a majority vote. Review of Activities. Heather Dawson provided a brief summary of ALISS Events during 2009/10 Membership.
