Chairman's Report - 2017

I am pleased to present my Annual Report for the year ending 31 March 2017.

      1. Finances:

Your society continues in a sound financial position.

 

Cash position at 31/3/2017 $ 59,518

Cash position at 31/3/2016 $ 61,370

 

The society's expenses were similar to the preceding year.

 

Total Expenses year to 31/3/2017 $ 23,234

Total Expenses year to 31/3/2016 $ 24,768

 

Funds on hand are adequate to meet our ongoing requirements, and are also sufficient to provide a buffer in the event of unexpected expenses.

 

There is no change sought to the rate of the annual membership fee, and no change in course fees is anticipated. We have effected a small change to Workshops (from $5 to $8).

 

Capitation fee paid by us to the Federation, in recognition of the work they do on behalf of ourselves and the wider SeniorNet community, increased to $3 per registered member in the past year, and will increase to $5 per registered member, with the first payment at this rate scheduled for 31 December 2017. Your Executive Committee is keeping a close eye on the effects of these changed fees. No changes are anticipated to course fee levels.

Microsoft are doing this because it is difficult to support such a range of browsers, and as part of their overall strategy to move users to Windows 10.
