June 2015 Treasurer's Report

Summer is here!  But we unfortunately ran out of workbooks just about the time the season changed.  This was due to a Perfect Storm of several things that came together at once, especially that the Printer had problems and delayed delivery by almost two weeks.  The Profit and Loss Statement shows that literature sales were down by about $10,000 from May.  But overall we are still up over $39,000 in net income for the year.  Still a very rosy picture.  And as Recovering Adult Children, while we might have felt inconvenienced by the delay in getting our workbooks, we knew they were not gone forever - they were just going to reappear in their own time . . . which they did.  And now they are literally "flying" out the door!

The WSO Admin Cost Center

  • There were healthy sales of the Audio Book.  The amounts for both that line and the eBook sales fluctuate depending on when we receive the income from Amazon (and Audible.) 
  • There were some reimbursement for the ABC and the total cost is expected to reach about $15,000.  Thank you again to the Lone Star Intergroup for doing such a great job!
  • We've grouped all Special Workers into one category to be more efficient.

April 2015 Treasurer's Report

Volunteers are always welcome to join the Finance Committee. We meet every other Tuesday at 1:15 pm CST via Skype.  If you are interested, please contact me by selecting the ACA WSO Treasurer from the dropdown menu on the Contact tab on this website.

The Balance Sheet shows that not much changed - just a little more movement into the Inventory Purchase Reserve as the office is placing orders for Workbooks, Soft Cover Meditation Books and Newcomer's Pamphlets.

The Profit and Loss Statement shows that the Net Income for April was less than $800.  This is primarily due to the cost of hosting the ABC, most of the expenses for which show up in that category in the WSO Admin Cost Center.

February's financials show that there was a net income for February of $3,254.  The details are in the Profit and Loss Statement.  This is down considerably from last month for several reasons, many of which are normal fluctuations. 

Of note in the Administrative portion of the P&L, which we call the WSO Cost Center, are that 7th Tradition contributions were lower by about $3,000 from last month, and we showed no income from Amazon ebook sales, which should show up in March. Expenses in this section are rising as we spend more money on Literature Development and outreach projects.
