Report from the Kascontrole commissie (Marielle, Webmind, Barbera)

Webmind notes::

   There were no real disrepnancies(sp), but there was a single
   payment not documented well - hopefully that can be done better next

The ALV thanks the committee for their work.

There were not enough people volunteering to join the committee, so this needs to be done at the next ALV.

Board activities and notes

Financial reminders were mailed to members, the list of people behind has been reduced quite a lot. If people were behind a lot months, the board suggested to pay three months of backlog, and then 'forget' about other outstanding payments.

Current finance overview

The board apologizes for being a bit late with the monthly financial report, we're still missing about 100 euro per month, approximately. Justa covers parts of the financial information that was also in the financial report.

Justa mentions that the rent will go up a bit in the next few months; about 0.4%. Justa mentions that the board also kept track of all the donation money and drinks; the average money of drinks is about 360 euro.

We've been financially stable in part due to the drinks money, we have been getting more memberrs in the last few months, initially they pay a bit less than the recommended amount.

Wizzup discusses some work done behind the scenes on the membership system, to deliver the monthly reports a faster, more on time, and in addition this work will help to get the yearly reports done faster.

Vesna asks to have all the yearly and monthly financial reports also on the wiki, not just on the list. Most people agree on this.

Votable points


Philip explains both his votable points and the seperation. They come down to the first ALV in the year to be in January doesn't leave enough time for the board and treasurer to have the report ready in January.

The special announce period of two months is (according to Philip) mostly weird, and he suggests to revert that to the default period.

First ALV of the year: when?

Currently the first ALV of the year needs to be in January, but the suggestion is to have it in the first three months.
