As you can see from the FY17 final report, the July 1, 2017 balance was 1675.60.
The balance on March 13, 2018, is 1500.06, a difference of 175.54.
The cash flow statement shows income of 836 and expenses of 1011.54, again, a difference of 175.54.
- The amounts received as state and national dues totaled 571 and were forwarded to AAUW, along with a 35 contribution.
- One major expense (297.85 total, 167.85 net) was for marketing – primarily booth rental and supplies for the Women AdvaNCe conference in November. AAUW NC shared that expense and their reimbursement check for 130 was posted in March.
- Another expense was dues waivers – a discount for one member, a Shape the Future membership for a conference attendee, and a student membership for a conference attendee.
- AAUW NC made a donation to us because we had a representative at the AAUW national meeting in June. That money was forwarded (as a program expense) to the one person who was a primary member of the branch when she registered and was not receiving reimbursement from AAUW NC.
Note that #2 and #4 were discussed on the board email list, and #3 continues our policy of providing discounts to renewing primary members as well as using Shape the Future memberships as prizes as we collect names for a drawing at events like the conference. More volunteers to follow up on the names we collect would be valuable to improve the ROI of our marketing expenses.
