Financial Report


May First/People Link has continued our trend of staying in the black. Our expenses roughly average between $4,000 and $5,000 per month and we maintain between $5,000 an $10,000 in the bank.

Both income and expenses have been slowly rising. We have failed to achieve an economy of scale for two principal reasons:

  • Bad timing on expansion: our biggest expansion decision came during the summer of 2007, when the economy was at its height. Since we couldn't afford to expand at Telehouse, we instead starting up with a new colo center.
  • Memberships are using more resources, but we are not increasing dues
  • New expenses: we are now paying rent for our offices and we've started spending more money on travel (US Social Forum/Conferences).

Outlook for 2010

August 2010 we will be renewing our contract with Bandcon. The Telehouse contract is not up until August 2011.
