SUBJECT: Office Management Report - May
Our bank balance as of today is $17,604.13 in checking and $10,205.69 in savings.
A revision to my cash flow summary last month: I reported that the $4,000 deposit
returned from the Bee Cave office benefited this year's rent budget, but I have since realized that
the deposit had already been included in the 2004 budget projection as miscellaneous income so
that's where it has been posted.
2004 Year-End Budget Balance:
A year-end budget sheet is attached showing how 2004 turned out. This is not quite final
but probably won't change much.
The financial report made to the board of directors in December predicted a net budget
profit of $6,612 for 2004, but there was actually a net loss of $-3,314. (This is still better than
the budgeted deficit ofQ$-4,051.)
The main problem was in Associate Dues - $6,160 less than budgeted was received, or
$3,160 less than projected. A final billing has been mailed to those who did not pay, so there is a
slight chance some of that money could still come in.
The remainder of the loss came from expense categories that went over budget.
A detailed summary of 2004 finances will be included in the July board meeting books.
" E-Mail List - Every person listed in the TDNA directory is being asked for his or her
personal e-mail address and fax number. We plan to complete these mailings and to
have compiled the contact lists for various newspaper departments by mid-summer.
" Subscription billing survey - Midland Reporter-Telegram circulation director Gary
Wamsley wants to know if any newspapers bill their customers weekly - in four-week
increments - rather than monthly. We will mail a brief survey to all circulation
directors this week.
" Mayborn Graduate Institute mailing - At the request of director Mitch Land, we
will do a mailing within the next few days publicizing their Writers Conference of the
Southwest to be held July 22-24, 2005. We have already received a packet of
brochures that we will include in the mailing.
TDNA will also send an e-mail reminder to editorial departments closer to the
time of the conference (a test run of our new e-mail contact list, as soon as we have it
up and running).
Here’s what’s next.
