2013-14 Finance Committee Report

Tracy Hewett, Chair

 

The Finance Committee met periodically throughout the year to review the latest financial information and projections concerning the Bar’s income and expenses, and to recommend a proposed budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year. The proposed budget was based on 4 months at 1123 S. Church St., Ste. 103 and 8 months in the new Bar & Foundation Center at 2850 Zebulon Ave. Working in conjunction with Executive Director Nancy M. Roberson and Director of Finance and Human Resources Sally Robinson, the Committee provided financial oversight primarily to ensure that spending in each category remained in line with budgeted goals.

 

The overall financial condition of the Bar remains solid, with income and expenses in line with expectations for the past fiscal year. The members of the Finance Committee provide a valuable service by donating their time to ensure good stewardship of the members’ dues and other income. Attendance and participation for 2013-14 were excellent, with a good exchange of ideas among Committee members.  We especially thank Committee members Claire Shapack, Brian Cromwell and Doug Edwards who are rolling off the Committee at the end of 2013-14.
