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.
