We are entirely self supporting and receive no subsidy from any source.
Our operating name is Cheltenham Art Club, and we are a company limited by guarantee, The Cheltenham Art Society Limited. £1 of every member’s first subscription is their membership of the Company and the limit of their liability. We have no shareholders and any money raised is ploughed back into providing facilities and activities for our members
The Cheltenham Art Society Limited is run by directors who are elected annually at our AGM in March. They also act as officers on our Club Management Committee, which meets monthly to deal with the day to day running of the club. We have no paid employees and the club is run entirely by volunteers, with expenses paid subject to committee approval when individuals incur costs.
Because we keep charges down this way, we depend on members being prepared to contribute their time, effort and skills towards the various jobs involved in keeping the club going.
