ALISS Finance

Jennie Grimshaw gave a full report on financial position to the AGM. All
      accounts has been signed off by the independent auditor John Helms
      and were accepted by the AGM as correct.

Income
Corporate and personal membership fees and sale of aliss quarterly totalled
£4,544 the 2011 summer conference made a profit of £852

Expenditure
Expenditure on the AGM totalled £1019 expenditure on the summer
conference was £455 for catering and £13 speakers expenses. Expenditure
on the Christmas event was £182. Public health seminar expenditure £156
Costs of developing a new website was £1000. Accounting advice £396 plus
technical support £50


Financial Position

Cash at bank 31 march 7,807
This led to a deficit of 1,120
The main cause of this was increased website fees. £500 was a one off fee.
Increased catering costs
One off public health seminar costs
Decreased income from the summer conference due to lower attendance.
This was believed to be due to the financial situation.
Membership relatively steady some decreased corporate membership from
the charity sector offset by increased individual membership
However if deficits contine membership fees may need to rise in the next
financial year. Non members attendance fees will be raised at all events.
