National Treasurer - Mark Fairchild


So I'm guessing you've visited this page either because (a) you aren't sure what the capitation fee is this year or (b) you're wondering what we spend all your money on.

If you don't see what you are looking for, or want some other information about 41 Club's finances then drop me an email and I will do my best to answer.  If I think it will be of interest to other members, I will publish it here as well.

In future, I will be posting my National Council / Board reports here (they are identical), which will include the latest I&E and an update to the cash-flow forecast.  You can find the latest one via the links on the left.


2017 Capitation fee is £14.50 per member

Your Treasurer will have received a Capitation Request in early January, unless of course the Club Administration System (CAS) isn't up to date, in which case it will have gone to the last years Treasurer (or the one before that, or ... well you get the picture).  If this has happened, I can send a copy to your new Treasurer as long as you promise to update CAS.

The fee is based on the number of members held on CAS as at 31st December.  If it differs from what you were expecting, that's probably because you didn't update CAS before that date.  If this has happened, please update CAS to reflect real life - while you are there, why not fill in the details of any members who aren't listed, so that they get the magazine, newsletter and all the other membership benefits and don't feel left out.  We will then accept the revised capitation figure for your club.

So where does it all get spent ?

You will find links to the latest accounts, for 2016, on the left hand side. They have been independently examined and will be voted on at the AGM in Blackpool.  For convenience, my report to the AGM can also be found under the same link, along with the Q&A's received.

What about next year ?

The 2018 Budget will also be voted on at the AGM.  Assuming it is passed, capitation will remain at £14.50 from 1st January 2018.  Again, you can find the actual budget plus the relevant part of my report under the appropriate link on the left hand side of this page.

Wot no fancy graphs / pie charts / infographics ?

I suppose I could post a few, but as I have a life outside of 41 Club and a full time job I would rather wait and see what you are interested in..... drop me an email and I will see what I can do.
