Date 11th July 2017 Signed R B Harris KCTTA Chair (Acting) On behalf of the Kent County Table Tennis Association Management Committee. This updates the Policy previously agreed by KCTTA Management Committee Meeting on 11th December 2013. This update amends the claimable expenses (now excludes travel) and emphasises adhering to the code of conduct. This update is in order to rationalise county income versus outgoings and re-promote the principle that to represent the county is a privilege that not all can aspire to and it requires a good standard of conduct, whilst also maintaining an ethos that all teams are treated with equanimity, all our teams and the number of teams being a good advert for the strength of table tennis in Kent. End. .
