Setting of subs for the 2007/2008 financial year:

It was proposed to keep the WCG subs at the previous rate of $20 for a full member. A second, third, and fourth member if they are in the same household will pay $10 per person, if there are children attending school there is no charge (this does not include NZSS membership). Any unwaged club members are to pay subs of $10.

The rate subs was proposed by the club president Simon Davis and seconded by Robert Sowerbutts.

  • The minutes from the committee meetings will now be posted on the WCG web site.
  • The new NZSS membership forms are currently not available and are in the process of being updated for the 2007/2008 membership.
  • The Sump Think newsletter will be posted on the website and a paper copy will continue to be sent to the National Library of NZ.
  • Trips were organised for the next four months details can be found on the Events web page.
  • It was discussed to look at completing an expedition in the next year, the Chatham Islands was suggested as a possible location.
  • A decision was made to hold Committee meetings monthly to get things moving. The frequency of the meetings will be reviewed at a later stage.
