Introduction and Names


Financial Report

  • Note: Changes name of section from "Treasurer's Report," as it's often not given by the treasurer.

Funds in bank: $12457.68

Pending liabilities:

  • $3600 - Rent (just sent the check)
  • $1500 - Reimbursement for buildout electrical expenses

Adjusted for liabilities, our current liquid assets are approximately $7357.

Recent non-recurring expenses:

  • $787.96 - 4,000 stickers (that's about 20 cents a sticker!)
  • $442.29 - 50 t-shirts

Our PG&E bill has also increased by 61% between our May ($284) and June ($457) bills. This is primarily due to a sizable rate increase, and will continue this way throughout the summer.
