Motion 11: Badges for Group Members

This Annual General Meeting notes that a new initiative, badges for child membership, has been approved and that new badges were issued in 2012, according to the average number of children in a group. We find this initiative un-workable, as the average number of children is not the same as the full number, especially as children leave the group and new ones join during the year. Therefore, with less than the required number of badges, we find they cannot be distributed to all children, and so cannot be distributed at all.

Motion 10: DF Five Year Membership

This Annual General Meeting agrees that the existing five year membership fee for DFs is set at five times the annual unwaged/low paid fee. With immediate effect shall be only available to those aged 16.

Proposed and seconded by: General Council

Supporting Information:
The five year fee was always intended to only cover DFs from age 16 to 21.
