Audited Results to December 31, 2010

Cash flow results

Reporting on a cash flow Basis Revenue for 2010 was $528,242 while expenditures were $448,064, leaving a year end cash balance of $170,404. This is a welcome anomalous effect of the 2010 Quebec CIGR revenues and the great work of the CIGR conference organisers. Typically revenues in a year when there is an AGM convention with presentations would be in the order of $100,000 while expenditures would be around $70,000 on a cash flow basis. Though AGM's on either coast can tend not to be profitable.

Member ship fees brought in $26,161 as compared to $31,435 in 2009. Some management fees and salaries from 2010 may only have been invoiced in 2011 and will show up in the 2011 annual audit. The current cash balance improvement year over year (2009 FY $114,061, 2110 FY $170,403) should not be expected to continue on a sustainable basis, instead $5000 to $3000 may be expected. This gives the CSBE executive some additional manoeuvring room but does not allow for a continuing full service paid Society Management team unless the executive and membership wish to take on the business of hosting International conventions every 2 years - as was so ably done by the Quebec members.
