Update from the UK FM Group (Western) EGM held on Monday 5th December 2016.
There was an open and candid discussion re expenditure over income and the fact that immediate action was required to secure the future of the network. The three most expensive repeater sites were discussed and the various ways to maintain the network coverage from these sites at a reduced cost. The decisions from this discussion are as follows:
· GB3MP to move from Moel-y-Parc to a new site at Gwaenysgor. If possible the move to be completed before the end of March 2017. This was unanimously agreed in the meeting.
· GB3MN & GB3MR to move from Bowstone to Walthew House. It is intended that this will happen before the end of June 2017. This was unanimously agreed in the meeting.
· GB3MA & GB7MA. There was much discussion regarding this site with no overall decision being made in the meeting. It was unanimously agreed to leave the decision of what to do with the site to the committee.
There was also a discussion regarding the cap on the level of membership subscription to the group, the discussion centred around raising the cap in the constitution to cover any future increases that may be needed to maintain the group. It was proposed and seconded by the floor that at the next AGM the cap be removed as any increases to subscriptions can only agreed at an AGM. It was agreed by all bar one that this change be actioned at the next AGM.
