One of the conditions of the AGM is to make sure all of our current
members have signed audit exemption forms. If you have already signed a
form, you do not need to do one again.
This form allows us to skip the ~$2000-$3000 yearly financial non-profit
audit, of which all members must agree to waive. In lieu of the audit
we'll be getting an outside bookkeeper to check things out from time to
time (especially now with the Trillium Grant), as well as that, any
member is welcome to see the books if they wish. The exemption form can
be downloaded here:
If everyone's OK with that, please print it out, sign it and return it
to the lab. You can drop it in the membership deposit box, in the laser
room next to the photocopier.
I know there are some members who would like to see an official audit as
we're approaching four years, and if that's you, I'd ask if we can
please postpone this audit until our fifth year. Our reserves are low
from the move and it would dig into our Emergency Fund, which we
definitely have better uses for (like keeping the lights on). Had we not
needed to move, we could have very well afforded it this year and I
would not have opposed it. Remember I can take you through the books if
you're weary, every transaction matches with our bank records.
