SKA is fully owned by its members and is supported by their subscriptions. The current annual subscription is £10.00 per family unit. There is normally a joining fee of £3.00.
The family unit consists of the member’s spouse and all their dependants in the household under the age of 18 years. Member and spouse, but not the dependants, will have one vote each at AGMs.  Membership year is 1st October to 30th September. The membership fee was fixed in 1997 and is good value under present economic conditions.

Membership News

The current Managing Committee was formed at an Annual General Meeting on 24 October 2010. The new president Ron Rodrigues had an enormous task on his plate about how to increase the fast dwindling membership numbers.   As a gesture of goodwill it was decided to write off all past subscription arrears up to 30 September 2010 and to start with a clean slate from 1st October 2010. This was a tremendous success and the membership is steadily increasing since the decision was taken to write off the old arreaars.

The Committee recognised the efforts put in by Ron Rodrigues in organising the pilgrimage trip to Lourdes during Easter 2011. The trip was a great success and enjoyed by those who took part.
Sheila to look into options for arranging for a show (such as a dance by a group, for example) during
the Xmas 2011 Dinner Dance. This will be funded by the SKA. Suggestions from other Committee members are welcome.

Ron will arrange a lunch for all the Committee members, to thank them for their efforts in running the SKA.  Ron will book a suitable venue. The target date is the 4th  of September. The Committee agreed that SKA will fund 50% of the costs of the lunch.
