March 2022 numbers are in and it is fun to announce good news. Consider the following as a BRIEF SUMMARY:

  • Membership is up by a net of 8 souls (from 146 to 154) which is an ALL TIME HIGH!
  • Membership income is up from $5,697.62 last month to $6,637.73 for March but this includes a $600 lump-sum membership payment bump that will be held in reserve and decremented over the 12 months.
  • Our March 2022 "Fixed Expenses" (Rent, Insurance, PP Fees, Warden Budget and MRO vote) were $6,632.07. Our landlord was late cashing our February $2,875.00 rent check last month. That amount was held reserve and now two rent payments are in this March 2022 total.
  • Our March 2022 "Discretionary Expenses" were $1,173.33 for membership vote reimbursements.
  • We started the month with $34,343.17 in operating funds and ended the month at $33,326.35.
  • Of this ending balance, $23,910 is "encumbered funds" (for the 6-month rainy day reserve, lump-sum membership pre-payments, AC Fund Drive unspent balance, and budgeted-but-not-yet-spent membership votes).
  • We have a current allowance of $9,416 available for discretionary purposes.

The open finance site has also been updated.

Know I have finally made some real progress this past month towards building a parallel accounting via QuickBooks Online Plus (QBO+). There is nothing to officially publish yet, but I have reconciled the PNC Main account records from January 2020 to March 2022. The PayPal account records are a bit more complex but that is the current task. I will also be finalizing the Ohio Attorney General annual filing and the Federal 990 annual filing in the next weeks before the May deadlines.
