B Jones spoke about the Rata Reserve (RRP) and Friends of Karamea Area School (FOKAS) Projects. He
suggested the best option for these projects, is to make them sub-committees of KCI. This would allow
them to use it’s established charitable status to good effect and with minimal delay required to set up.
The possibility of something like the RRP project is already in the Urban Plan that KCI developed several
years ago. Members are D Sanders, P Moynihan, R Sampson, L Avery, C Jones and B Jones
FOKAS has Board of Trustees and wider community representation, with R Sampson, P Langford and B
Jones from KCI, for a total committee size of 10.
Moved that RRP and FOKAS be accepted as sub-committees of KCI
Moved: B Jones
seconded: P Moynihan
Terms for these subcommittees:
There should be a list of committee members and their roles, but the groups are autonomous.
They are expected to report back to KCI monthly
They cannot commit KCI to any debt
Membership is voluntary, but it would be nice if the groups voluntarily paid $5 membership fee.
P Langford left the meeting at 1425.
The Youth Group has decided to keep things simple and not become a sub-committee of KCI.
R Sampson wanted to invest $40,000 of Youth Group money.
Moved: D Sanders

Moved that the Financial Report be accepted and the accounts be paid.
Moved: R Sampson
Seconded: P Gibson
