With stringent Government restrictions coming in to force it now means that BeCA and its Management Team will now go into a form of hibernation. The situation will be reviewed on June 1st.
At a recent BeCA Executive meeting, payment of our Public Liability Insurance was endorsed. BeCA will further investigate how it may provide even better coverage for our volunteers and management team members.
Concerns were raised as to what was the situation for advertisers who had paid already for an advert to be included in the upcoming Newsletters. BeCA will include these advertisers in future copies of The Connector and use up credits already paid for. It will be impossible to produce a Newsletter with current Government restrictions on the size of groups meeting in one place. Also, as many of the deliverers are in their 70’s and currently that age group has special considerations with emergency measures, it would be all but impossible to distribute the newsletter across the estates.
BeCA also expects access to the printing facilities at Mark McArdle’s Office will be removed owing to the current crisis
As a result production of newsletters will cease until restrictions are eased and we again have access to newsletter printing. This decision will be reviewed on June 1. The Public meeting set down for June can not go ahead under current government restrictions and Council has restricted access to Bellvista Meeting Place.
There was lengthy discussion on the range of requirements needed to satisfy the Department of Fair Trading requirements for our Association’s Incorporation going forward. BeCA was required to alter the constitution so the Financial Year was now to be completed at the end of October each year. Signed copies of the updated Constitution were required along with the raft of forms they had requested. Each form required multiple signatures or initialing. The Constitution on the website has been updated as well.
All forms have now been completed and have been posted.
Emails, phone calls and messaging will continue between the Executive and all Management Committee members to ensure BeCA can continue to operate until some sense of normalcy returns.
