December was a good month for sales, although it's traditionally a little slower than other months because of the holidays.  The P&L Statement shows that there was a net profit of $4,288.  There was also an increase in 7th Tradition Contributions as WSO received additional individual contributions before the year end.  Contributions are listed separately in the left menu.  The Balance Sheet is available here

The final financial documents for the month fo October were delayed because of the Board Strategic Planning meeting and all efforts surrounding it.  They are posted below. 

There was a net loss on the P&L because of the transition of some of the WSO fulfillment operation to another facility in Illinois.  Some of the materials were not available for several weeks.

Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee Report - November 2016

Treasurer's Report

There was a net profit for November of $8,237 as shown on the bottom line of the Profit & Loss Statement.  Sales of literature increased because our distribution channels were fully stocked, except for the hard cover Meditation Book, which is projected to be available again at the end of December.  A list of the 7th Tradition contributions, totalling  $5,191, are shown in a separate tab in the Repository.  Additional expenses for the month included the Board's Strategic Planning Session.  An extensive plan was created that will be presented to the fellowship. 

The Balance Sheet shows an increase based on the net profit. 

Finance Committee

Committee members Jeffrey F., Melani M., and I welcomed two new members since the last Board teleconference meeting - Charlie H., our newest Board member, and David McB., a long-time member of the fellowship from Florida.
