The role of Treasurer is to try and help with discretional financial decisions throughout the year. Once again this year we were able to post a small profit.

It could have been slightly bigger, but we decided to make a donation of $3,000 to the Olympic fund to help balance out an expected forced donation in 2016/17.

Memberships were up although this was not shown in the membership revenue, due to the accounting methodology we use. A high proportion of the memberships were in the second half of the fiscal year, and thus a larger than average percentage of the membership revenue was pro-rated to 2016-17.

Here are the financial statements

The good news about the reporting method is that it should increase the reported funds available for fiscal 2017 when we will need the money to pay for the Olympiad. Of course the reality is that what is important is the cash flows and in that respect we are quite healthy even with the upcoming expenses.
