The General Fund budget is reported on at each Annual Meeting. The previous year’s budget is compared with the actual income and expenditure and the following year’s budget is reviewed and approved. Historically, the Council’s income from Affiliation Fees funds the cost of the Annual Meeting itself, although in 2020 and 2021 the meetings were virtual and hence had significantly lower costs. The budgeted Workgroup expenditure, to the extent it exceeds the Council’s income, comes from reserves, which at 31st December 2021 stood at £164,000.
The General Fund budget for 2022 can be found here. The Council expects to return to an in-person meeting in 2022 hence the meeting cost.Budget-2022
