Would you like to easily contact an Independent Financial Examiner to examine your WI's books at the end of the financial year? DFWI has a pool of Independent Financial Examiners you can call on to examine the accounts for a fee of £15.
All you have to do to request an examiner is contact Derbyshire House either by email or post, remember if you use email you don't have to send a SAE, with the details of your WI and the date of your annual meeting. The earlier the request is made the better. You will be allocated an examiner as close geographically to you as possible who you can contact to make mutually convenient arrangements for the accounts to be examined. Examiners are friendly, helpful and efficient. Why not give them a try?
Why not arrange a Kurling Night for your WI, please download the hire form for more information.
