What does your membership pay for?
Unlike more informal groups, there are costs as a formal group. As a Charitable Organisation and Incorporated Society we have to comply with certain rules and regulations, such as
- hiring an auditor once a year
- holding an AGM
- operating a bank account
Other costs specific to us include:
- the WHEN library
- membership packs
- public information brochures
- KIP magazine
- web hosting
The use of us being a ‘formal’ organisation as opposed to an informal one is manifold. It gives us a lot more ‘clout’ as a home educating community. It also gives us access to events that usually only school groups would have access to.
