CLE Committee, 2012-13 Report
FY '13 MCB CLE Financial Analysis (as of 6/14/13)
2013 Budgeted Expense $198,000
2013 Budged Net $389,500
Comparison with FY '12
Project FY '13 to exceed FY '12 Net Income by $28,000
Medium to small solo firms comprised the majority of live CLE program attendees. Those numbers are slightly up over FY '12. Large firms made the most financial impact by sponsoring video replays. Income from on-demand classes held steady with FY '12. Offering the Professionalism for New Admittees program (fka NAPP) live presentation twice and video format once filled MCB financial. MCB projects we attract over 75% of local new admittees to the mandatory state bar class.
Decreased expenses due in large part to non CLE merchant card fees being removed from CLE expense line item. Queens Road onsite catering a decrease as MCB offered "brown bags", no large breakfast buffets and "lunch on your own" programs. No negative feedback received.
