It gives me great pleasure to announce that one of the initiatives that I announced in my Keynote Speech at the Weird Weekend has now come to pass. As of last thursday, The Centre for Fortean Zoology, CFZ Press, and The Amateur Naturalist plus all the other things we do within the realms of both Cryptozoology and Natural History are administered by a Company Limited by Guarantee called "CFZ Natural History Ltd".
A Company Limited by Guarantee is basically a limited company set up not to make a profit, and is the next step to being a charity. There are two Directors: Graham and myself, and as - by law - neither director can benefit financially from the activities of the company, I hope that this will put to bed, once and for all, any accusations of financial impropriety on mine, or Graham's (or indeed Corinna's, because as wife of a Director, she cannot benefit financially either) part. Accounts will be available, as with any other company, from Companies House.
