This is the OFT’s register of
officialcorrespondence received from the AVN.Of all the 17 years it has been in existence, only twice could it be possible that the AVN has complied with this requirement of the Act: 1995 and 2008. Theiroccasional President and now Public Officer, Ms Meryl Dorey, seems to have allthe time in the world for speaking at conspiracy- theory conferences andblogging on Facebook, but evidently, complying with the law is beneath her.Note that under the Act, it is the Public Officer who has personal responsibility forensuring that the relevant documentation is submitted to the OFT. A quick back-of
the-envelope calculation, assuming the AVN has four committeemembers and one public officer, each of whom may be fined, and with the AVNas a corporate body also being liable, the total amount of fines that could havebeen levied totals $82,500. This ignores fines for failing to hold AGMs,submitting financial statements to AGMs, maintaining a register of committeemembers, conducting elections of officers, and so on; each of which we know the AVN failed to do in many years.
