NOTE: All branch members are deemed to constitute a Branch Committee for any such purposes; for approval
Present: Huw Williams (Chair) and 18 members
Meeting finished at 11:40am
Balance at April 2017
The branch has been superbly active in the past twelve months since the annual general meeting of last June: reflected in constant and enthusiastic attendances - sometimes topping thirty- attracting a range of nationally-recognised speakers, generating an income source of over £1,000, offering a dedicated website and more than contributing to the well-being of Adult Learning Wales on a regional and national basis as well as a constant support to Canolfan Soar.
There have been more guest speakers this past two terms reflected in the higher tutors’ expenses on the balance sheet but it does say a lot for Merthyr Tydfil and Canolfan Soar, to attract guest lecturers from afar, not to mention committed attendances from several members, again coming from afar. Chair gave notice a few months ago that he will no longer act as lead tutor for these classes; so the whole membership in consultation with ALW regional office are charged with the future continued activity of this branch.
