Minutes of a Directors Meeting held on 29.9.13
Present: Laurence, Cathy, Ewan, Estha, Bill, Chris Latham
1.Articles of Association
It was agreed to recommend for amendment the sections of the Articles of Association and Memorandum of Association for the SCA covering the issue of members being employed, to allow members but not directors to take employment such as the road job. Any such amendment or deletion must win 75% of the vote of members present at an Extraordinary General Meeting.
A note will be sent to all Scoraig residents outlining the proposed amendments and notifying them of an EGM on December 8th
It was noted that membership of the SCA is less formal than required under the Articles of Association, which require a signed application and a register of members. Members will be requested to sign a short form at the next meeting.

Bags (filled) £666.65
There followed a discussion on how to spend the present budget, and whether to prioritise the section below Lotts. Agreed that a budget of £1000 for chippings should be allocated for along Lotts, and £1200 for bags of pebbles along Carnoch/Ruigh’riabhach, and that by February if one budget had been used up but not the other, money could be transferred. A day was set for a volunteer day of October 5th. Ewan will experiment with doing stone slab run-offs with Andy Cox.
