Please see the attached files.

There are three spread sheets - each one is uploaded as an Open Document format (OpenOffice). If you have OpenOffice, please download the ODS version to get the full formatting. If you don't have OpenOffice, you can download the CSV version which can be imported into any spread sheet program.

At the moment, we only have data through June 2008.

A couple points worth mentioning:

  • We operate on a very tight budget (about $50,000/year)
  • Almost all income is from Membership dues. Almost all expenses are either Internet connectivity or computer hardware purchases
  • There are big discrepancies between cash in and income. That's because we have a lot of members who don't pay their dues. Our profit/loss shows a big profit, however, our cash in/out shows that only in 2008 have we started getting ahead.
  • New membership is in decline. It's been in decline as you can see from the spread sheets. The steepest declines, however, have been since June 2008. Fortunately, thanks to a lot of new members in 2006 and 2007, we are still doing well with renewals.
