Action items from previous meeting

  • Action: Steve to send Xero/Westpac bank feed form to facilitate reporting (done).
    • Note from Mike: Has been passed on to Xero, should be active for 24 July, plenty of time to produce statements before our next BAS is due in August.
  • ACTION: Steve to discuss with Alex to ensure that we have not mis-interpreted anything, and to clarify the point about spending. Need to ensure that she understands what will follow (see above motion), shared concern about community being behind the event. (done)


Finance report

  • Updated cash summaries will be released once bank feeds are available.
  • Since we have not had a cash summary published yet, note that the correction (upward revision) to Xero balance of approximately $2,899 will be included in the 2014/15 accounts.
    • Thanks to Craig for assisting with tracking this down to the original balance.
    • Westpac card arrived due to PayWave issue, nothing of importance to note.
