In 1976 the Morris Register established MoClub Ltd, a Private Company limited by twelve shares, to manage the assets of the Morris Register on behalf of the club. The twelve shareholders were nominated club members acting on behalf of the membership. However whilst this “on trust” arrangement worked, it meant in practice that only 12 club members “owned” the company. It was decided to modernise this arrangement and create a company, The Pre 1940 Morris Register Limited, that was owned by every member of the club.
The Pre 1940 Morris Register Limited is governed by the Companies Act 2006 and is a Private Company, limited by guarantee and with no share capital. It was incorporated in August 2010. On 1st April 2011 it assumed the role of administrator of the Club and custodian of members’ assets and from 1st October 2011, MoClub Ltd resolved to loan in perpetuity all of it’s assets to The Pre 1940 Morris Register Limited.
Those in Morris Register membership prior to 1st April 2011, joined the company as part of the annual membership renewal process in April 2011. Members’ spouses/partners also joined provided they also signed the membership renewal/application form. Subsequently any individual, and spouse/partner as appropriate, joining the Morris Register, also joins the company as a fully integrated part of the membership process.
The Governing Body of the Club is the National Committee, which comprises elected officers, specialist officers and regional secretaries. There are currently 5 company directors, who are appointed from the elected officers.
