Thinking literally for a moment, for a crime to have been committed, a law needs to have been broken.

Joshua did in fact present a treasurers report at the AGM. If you were unhappy with that, you should have spoken up. I counted zero "no" votes on the motion to accept that report.

It's the reality of timing and a volunteer organisation.

The reason LA doesn't generally present a neat and tidy end-of-year financial report at the AGM, is that the AGM is *always* in the middle of the one event that causes a lot of changes to the various bank accounts.

This is why LA will hold a Special General Meeting when the finances are ready. In advance of the SGM you will be able to study the financial figures to your heart's content.
