Treasurer's Report 2009
Gregory Clinton, Ph.D.
NCSPP completed our fiscal year with a net profit of just over $9,000. This profit is particularly noteworthy given that our Peninsula/South Bay ISG had low enrollment and our San Francisco ISG had to be cancelled altogether due to under-enrollment. In past years when the ISGs did poorly, the organization's financial health suffered greatly. The fact that we could still turn a profit this year is because the board has worked hard to structure our budget so that we are not so reliant on the ISGs to shoulder the financial load of the organization. This shift helps minimize the financial mood swings that can occur from year to year.
Another factor in NCSPP's financial health is the move to make more use of our website, electronic communication, and NCSPP's online newsletter, Impulse. We are able to cut costs by minimizing snail mail and encouraging people to renew memberships, register and pay for courses, make donations, and even get membership directories all online. Not only do we save mailing and administrative costs, but we also save trees, and people finding out that doing business online is actually more convenient.
In addition, advertising income from our online newsletter, Impulse, grew to $4,700 last year. Impulse was originally founded as an online newsletter whose mission is to serve the larger analytic community, not just NCSPP. We are currently making efforts to expand Impulse in order to reach out more to other organizations and to help provide a way for other psychoanalytic groups to connect with one another. As a result, such a network could potentially generate additional income that can then be used to support other services to the community.
NCSPP has been able to maintain a healthy financial reserve, totaling approximately $82,000. A few years ago we moved most of our reserves into conservative mutual funds and money market accounts. This enabled the organization to weather the current economic downturn with minimal losses.
Thanks to the hard work of our current board and committee members, and to the visionary efforts of past members, NCSPP is on very sound footing. Exciting ideas are continuing to be explored about how we want to move the organization forward.
