Treasurer's Report

This month with several large catch-up dues payments, we were a net positive after expenses of $440. It is difficult to assess the expected monthly income from looking at the cash flow spreadsheet because of differing payment cadences, the best way is through looking at the current membership numbers. We added two new members last month, for a total of 25 members in good standing. At the current rates that everyone is paying it works out to an average of $1340 a month. This is below our breakeven point (~1600) so we are slowly losing money though we as the BOD are looking into methods to extend HacDC's funding support.
