Exec Summary: All accounting is current. Financial Fitness Grade : B

Our April dues didn't grow as much as they should have with 7 new members. May dues should give more data. Our monthly overhead expenses run about $3600 (after BNektar payment).

The first Utilities/BNektar payments ($677) hit in April books.

April 30.2014 Report Spreadsheet (pdf) and a full report are in i3 Data Vault, Admin/Budget folder.

New (to us) label printer! Blame/thank Evan for the hardware, Matt Gardeski for the labels/printserver. New (and legible!) labels on everything! All credit to Gardeski for that one. The very last microUSB cable vanished from the Elenco PSU. Okay, fuckit, I'm ordering a hundred more.
