At the meeting on Monday 3 June 2019 it was RESOLVED THAT the Kent History Federation be dissolved with effect from the end of the annual general meeting held on 3 June 2019, and that notwithstanding such dissolution the provisions of Paragraph 3 of the Resolution passed at the quarterly meeting of the Federation on Monday 4 March 2019 [see * below] shall continue in force such that the current officers and executive committee of the Federation shall continue to have power to take all remaining necessary steps to give effect to the orderly dissolution of the Federation.

* The current officers and executive committee of the KHF do have all reasonable powers between now and the said AGM and thereafter to take all necessary steps to give effect to the orderly dissolution of the KHF including, but not limited to,

    1. ceasing to publish the Journal of Kent History (the March 2019 issue of which will be its last issue),
    2. making arrangements (if any are reasonably practicable) for another publication catering for local historians in the historic County of Kent to continue to publish articles and reviews of books of interest to such local historians, and to contain news of and advertisements concerning local history societies in Kent, provided that no officer or executive committee member of the KHF shall have any ongoing obligations in respect of any such matters,
    3. making arrangements (if any are reasonably practicable) for another body to maintain the Speakers’ List such that that body becomes totally responsible for it in future,
    4. settling all the KHF’s outstanding debts (including sorting out once and for all the non-invoicing of hire charges by County Hall for quarterly meetings held there over several recent years),
    5. reimbursing any subscribers for copies of the Journal whose subscriptions would still have been in place if the publication of the Journal were not being discontinued,
    6. in due course destroying such papers of the KHF which they deem no longer reasonably necessary to retain, and making arrangements for the archiving in an appropriate repository of such papers as they decide are of permanent interest (such as agendas and minutes, and a complete run of the Journal of Kent History,
    7. if any are applied for pursuant to Paragraph 9 of the KHF’s constitution, making grants or loans as therein provided to any affiliated society of the KHF, and
    8. distributing all remaining assets of the KHF to such Kent local history-related charity or charities as the current officers and executive committee of the KHF deem appropriate, giving due consideration to (but not being bound by) any suggestions in that regard made by members of the KHF
