The Committee recommends that, to overcome the problems raised, the BMC reserve fund be given to the EMS and LMS to hold in trust for the support of future BMCs. Then each individual BMC could be considered to be a conference organised solely by the host university, but of course having received advice on the choice of speakers from the BMC Committee at the previous meeting. The EMS and LMS would, in some appropriate manner, use the reserve fund to guarantee each conference on condition that any small profit would be returned to the reserve fund.
The Committee proposes, that this BMC Annual General Meeting give approval to the introduction of such arrangements subject to the agreement between the BMC and the EMS and LMS being modified in the spirit of the above recommendation.
