Standing Reports

Treasurer's report (Globerman)

Bank balance on 9/9/2018: $27,845.23 This represents a $203.45 decrease since last reported balance on 8/26/2018

It is moved by Bryan Globerman that LOPSA needs to generate more income (e.g., increase non-student membership dues from $50 to $60+/year effective 11/1/2018) in order to partially offset some major expenses (e.g., Xinspire, community manager) acquired this year. The current "burn rate" of about $1000/month will take us below the cash-reserve minimum balance of $25,000 by around early December (see If a dues increase is not acceptable, expenses need to be reduced, in order to be consistent with the financial policy. After discussion, motion was not seconded. Informal discussion about scheduling a meeting to discuss in depth.
