a) The Special Resolution was not put to the vote as there was unanimous opinion that the Society had a future and every effort will be made to ensure its continuation.
b) The decision as to when and where meetings are to be held was unresolved, but preference seemed to be on Saturday afternoons in Leeds. However the possibility of holding meetings in York or Pontefract during the liquorice fair will be investigated. The possibility of meeting at the Leeds Library in Commercial Street is to be looked into.
c) The Programme for 2020 will start in March and talks have been so far offered by Robert Barraclough, Richard Fynes, Alan Humphries, Mike Roberts, and Peter Watson. Mike Roberts has also volunteered to use his contacts to obtain further speakers. David Lee is keen to put on activities etc with Museums, Libraries.

The Council and any other interested persons will meet up in the not too distant future to firm up and arrange the programme and location / dates of meetings – possibly at the York Coin Fair on January 17th – 18th.
