Officer Reports

Treasurer & Budget

    • Q: Update on last months note: "There appears to have been an unexpected drop in Dues. The CRM Team is working to figure out if this is a mistake, a glitch, or if we actually are down that much..."
      • A: Looks like an anomaly for December. January is still down about $1k from prior average, but that is close to current expectations considering the current situation (approximately 50 people are currently on annual, which would decrease monthly revenue by about $2.5k/month, while the remaining 100-ish members paying an extra $10/month is an increase of $1k, which is a net negative of $1.5k, but honestly, some people were on annual before, so net negative of $1k seems reasonable. This doesn't include regular donations, t-shirts sales, etc.).
  • Report:
    • Currently in the bank: $103613.37
    • All the bills are getting paid.
    • Net income is around -$600, and should be higher because of a glitch in our landlord cashing rent checks (expect it to be more negative next month).
      • This is expected! We are spending down saving towards allocations, and dues aren't keeping up because of all the yearly dues.
  • Everything is rolling along as expected.
  • Beueller!
