Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee - January 2017

Treasurer's Report

7th Tradition Contributions are listed under that tab in the left menu.  There will be an adjustment of $539.35 that was supposed to be attributed to Intergroup Sales on the P&L Statement.  There is an anomaly with PayPal that shows several contributions and no indication of where they came from.  We usually attribute anonymous contributions to the City and State, or City and Country of origin, or list them as completely anonymous if requested. But we have always had basic information. We will be researching this with PayPal. 

As always, if there is incorrect information in the list, please send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

The financial statements are as follows:

Balance Sheet - click here ..... No significant changes

Profit and Loss Statement - click here ..... The net income for January was $23,904.  Some adjustments will have to be made because a payment for merchandise that was done outside of the shopping cart was incorrectly attributed as a contribution.  Also, over $9,000 in charges for our 3rd party fulfillment center should have been paid in December and January but were delayed until this past week due to internal miscommunication. 

Finance Committee

Members: Jeffrey F., Charlie H., David M. and Mary Jo L.  At Mary Jo's request, Bill D. has re-joined the Committee as the incoming Treasurer.

We had 2 meetings since the last TC.  Have been working on: meal per diem policy, budget, David/Amazon accounts.  We will wait for Audit results before making changes to the Chart of Accounts. 

Respectfully submitted,

Mary Jo L.

Treasurer's Report

December was a good month for sales, although it's traditionally a little slower than other months because of the holidays.  The P&L Statement shows that there was a net profit of $4,288.  There was also an increase in 7th Tradition Contributions as WSO received additional individual contributions before the year end.  Contributions are listed separately in the left menu.  The Balance Sheet is available here

The final financial documents for the month fo October were delayed because of the Board Strategic Planning meeting and all efforts surrounding it.  They are posted below. 

There was a net loss on the P&L because of the transition of some of the WSO fulfillment operation to another facility in Illinois.  Some of the materials were not available for several weeks.

Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee Report - November 2016

Treasurer's Report

There was a net profit for November of $8,237 as shown on the bottom line of the Profit & Loss Statement.  Sales of literature increased because our distribution channels were fully stocked, except for the hard cover Meditation Book, which is projected to be available again at the end of December.  A list of the 7th Tradition contributions, totalling  $5,191, are shown in a separate tab in the Repository.  Additional expenses for the month included the Board's Strategic Planning Session.  An extensive plan was created that will be presented to the fellowship. 

The Balance Sheet shows an increase based on the net profit. 

Finance Committee

Committee members Jeffrey F., Melani M., and I welcomed two new members since the last Board teleconference meeting - Charlie H., our newest Board member, and David McB., a long-time member of the fellowship from Florida.
