Governing document:

Founded in 1930 by Mary Bagot Stack, WLHB is incorporated as a charity, limited by Guarantee
and is governed by its Articles of Association approved 12 March 2011. Under the Companies Act 2006
the League is permitted to omit the word ‘Limited’ from its title. All paid up Fitness League
(and from September 2017 FLexercise) members and teachers automatically have voting rights within
the Association. A portion of their membership fee is passed to the charity. Those who are not
members or active teachers and wish to support the charity may do so by becoming a Friend of WLHB
for a fee paid direct to the charity.

Appointment of Trustees

As set out in the Articles of Association, the Trustees are appointed by the members
of the Association at annual general meetings. Trustees must retire at annual general meetings at
least once every three years. At the end of the third term of their office, they shall
automatically step down and may not be reappointed until the expiry of 12 months after the end of
their third term of office. The Trustees meet at regular intervals throughout the year. There are
several sub-groups, including events and finance.

Risk Management

The Trustees have examined the major strategic, business and operational risks that the charity
faces and confirm that systems have been established to enable reports to be produced
so that the necessary steps can be taken to lessen the risks. A key element in the management of
financial risk is the setting of a reserves policy and its regular review by the trustees.
