SMISA Member's Discretionary Pot

Every quarter we hold a ballot for our members which allows them to decide were £2 of their subscriptions can be spent. We take suggestions for project ideas from the Club and memberbase and then each quarter these are voted on. The winning projects are then able to be carried out. Below you can see a list of the previous ballots and the results.
