Meeting: 2016 AGM/Treasurer Report

< Meeting:2016 AGM
Revision as of 07:29, 9 October 2016 by Andrew Owens (talk | contribs) (+)

I became Treasurer on 28 October. Much of my work involved tying up loose ends from previous terms (some as long ago as 2010) with a view to handover to the next Committee.

As at the AGM, we have $132.83 in our Paypal account and $40,692.07 in all other accounts. This is down from $62,804 at the last AGM.

The year's financial performance is outlined at File:Wikimedia Australia Inc. - Balance Sheet 2015-16.pdf.

Key expenditures during the financial year (July 2015-June 2016):

  • $7315.58 - Wikidata tour
  • $6920.42 - F2F meetings in Perth
  • $2395.61 - Darwin 2016
  • $655.70 - Wikipedia 15 parties
  • $508.44 - Volunteer support

2016 term had the best balance of project/outcome spending to admin spending of any term since our first. I believe the outgoing committee can be justly proud of this achievement.

I have already commenced handover with Robert Myers, who I believe will make a great Treasurer and who brings useful experience to the role both internal and external. I have appreciated working with him.
