Year to Date Profit and Loss for Second Quarter of 2017

  • Year to Date, we had a total gross profit of $82,614.80 and $87,546.36 in expenses.
  • Our expenses included $15,250 in accounting expenses, of which $12,250 was a one-time expense to address our past accounting deficiencies.
  • Our net profit for the first half of the year was -$5,024.94.

IRS 990 Update: Our IRS 990 is due on November 15, 2017 (extension date). I have reviewed the report and a copy is attached, which I will sign with the approval of the Executive Committee. Any objections to be submitted to him by September 19.

Sales Tax Update: All of our Sales Tax returns are up to date and paid in full with one exception for April 2016, which we are waiting for the District reply.  We have paid a total of $9,990.10 in taxes and interest for sales tax due since 2014.  All penalties have been waived.  As of today, we have a credit of $0.87.

Total cost of Accounting work

  • = $2,450 (for sales tax and bookkeeping)
  • = $12,750 (for sales tax and bookkeeping)

$2,500 (for 2015 990)

$2,500 (for 2016 990, bill coming)

$4,175 (for sales tax and bookkeeping, bill coming)

$480 (estimate for Q4 sales tax and bookkeeping)

$24,855 Total, $20,405 in 2017

Of the total expected accounting costs in 2017 of $20,405, $5,500 is for usual and customary expenses that we expect to continue to have in 2018 and $14,905 for one-time expenses due to our accounting deficiencies.

Our total accounting costs for repairing our past accounting failures is less than the amount we would have paid had we employed a competent accountant since 2014 ($21,600 for 48 months).

Our initial estimates were that we would owe over $17,000 in sales tax for 2014-2016, with penalties over $7,000 and interest over $27,255 for a total liability of more than $50,000.

Our accountants were able to get this figure down to $10,060 in sales tax, $2,840 in interest and no penalties; a total liability of $12,905. DC has waived all sales tax penalties from 2014-present.

2018 Budget: Sales tax returns need to be done monthly. 990’s annually. QuickBooks support will require a quarterly review of up to 4 hours. Any additional changes to our categories and accounts will be billed at $80.00 per hour. Sales tax return prep is about $100 per month.

990 = $2500 per year.

Sales Tax Returns = $1200 per month

Bookkeeping support = $1280

Total = $4,980 ($415/month)

Recommended Budget of $450/month or $5500/year.

 

Finance (Karen): [see attachment]: After a productive and efficient budget meeting in August, the 2018 proposed budget came in at -$ 3,056.32. Matt proposed that we increase the contributions by that amount for a balanced budget. Hopefully we can vote on and get this approval tonight. On a separate but related topic, the budget meeting included a lively discussion on 2019 budget for the banquet. This will be a separate vote since the banquet approval is always months ahead of our usual budget meeting. I asked Jordan to elaborate on this plan:

  • if income 2018 banquet breaks even with budget, 2019 budget would be set by income brought in
  • if 2018 banquet is over budget, 2019 banquet budget would be established by gross proceeds from 2018 banquet income – cost of 2018 banquet
  • If the cost of 2018 banquet is under budget and/or gross proceeds exceeds budget, then 50% of proceeds of net income will be added to 2019 budget with remaining 50% given back to fund WAIA operations

Last but not least, I will give the quarterly update for October WAIA meeting as my last task as Finance Chair.

 

Office Committee (Jeff; office@aa-dc.org): The Office Committee usually meets the first Monday of the month at 7pm at the WAIA Office; however, the meeting will be held on October 9th.  There is also a dial in number, 515/739-1020 use access Code: 617307. The Office Committee formulates the overall policy for the operation of the WAIA office; recommends personnel policies for the employed staff of the Board of Directors to the Executive Committee and to the Board of Directors; recommends the salary range for the employees of the Board of Directors to the Executive Committee; and performs other such duties from time to time that may be assigned by the Board of Directors, the Chairman of the Board of Directors, or the Executive Committee.  The Office Committee advocates for and assists the office staff and desk volunteers to be the face of AA in the Washington DC, Montgomery county, and Prince George county performing the seven tasks of an Intergroup/Central Office contained in the AA Service Manual. Office Committee membership is open to current members of the Board of Directors (WAIA Representatives), current and past officers of the Board of Directors, and members of the Executive Committee. If you want to join stop by during the monthly meeting or contact us via email office@aa-dc.org. Our current needs are to improve the Office 12 step coordination process, the accuracy of volunteer list and the responsiveness of volunteers to answer the call (See handouts); to fill vacant desk volunteer slots; and to improve office functions and services. The function and service focus is on the Where and When. Size reduction is necessary to keep the price at $1.00.  Therefore, meetings in outlying counties are being removed and a link to Area 71 Virginia with their meeting locator has been added in the WAIA website. Another primarily driver is that we want to make sure that meeting information is not outdated when it’s just as easy to provide a connection to the primary/original source of information.  The final driver is to reduce the amount of work that goes into trying to verify the data that we don’t get directly from the groups/meetings that are not part of Area 13. There will be a Desk Volunteer Workshop/ Appreciation Day at the Westside Club in the afternoon on October 28th.

Area General Service Assembly (WAGSA) convened twice as an informational committee meeting, on both Monday, August 14 and Monday, September 11. At each session, the Delegate provided what limited information was permissible about the litigation regarding ownership of the printer’s copy of the first edition of the Big Book. He also provided information about and copies of the new, yellow “Safety Card for AA Groups.” The many who attended the XLV

Convention Hispanic of AA on September 1-3 at the Hilton Baltimore reported on the success of that event. Several of the Districts have become quite active, holding not only organizational meetings, but social and recovery-themed events.

Separate committees are working on plans for the Eastern Area Conference of Young People in AA (EACYPAA) and the International Conference of Young People in AA (ICYPAA) both of which will hold meetings in Maryland in 2018. Although no formal business is finalized at Area Committee meetings, two topics, which will be discussed and voted on at the Fall Assembly meeting were introduced: 1) reduce the number of Area Committee meetings from eleven per year in favor of more direct communication at the District levels; three Assembly meetings per year are required by the corporate Bylaws; and 2) distribute draft Minutes of each Area Committee and Assembly meeting by E-mail to all registered Assembly participants within fourteen days after each meeting, so that they can be read and considered prior to the call for their approval at the next session.
