Overall for FY 2017, expenses were 2 percent lower
than budgeted, despite increased spending for legislative
advocacy and donations.
In FY 2017, expenses were held in check thanks in large
part to the work of AMG. EPD, working with dedicated
AMG meeting staff, held expenses well below budget,
resulting in significant savings on our Annual and
Hawaii meetings. Additional savings were realized on
CSA Officers and external meeting expenses, including
expenses related to delegation activities at the 2016 ASA
Annual Meeting.
Financial reserves are an important means for ensuring
stability in the CSA's mission to serve our members,
especially when revenue or expenses fluctuate. In the past,
reserves have been used to cover capital improvements
for items like our new member database, updating our
computer systems, and to cover unanticipated legal or
legislative challenges. For example, reserves were used
in FY 2015 to advocate on behalf of our members and
patients by making important contributions to the
successful "No on Prop 46" campaign. Currently, our
operating cash plus short- and long-term reserves total just
under $3 million, or about one year's operating budget.
The healthy financial status of our society means that we
are in a position to continue to expand on our strategic
goals in service to the mission of the CSA!
For the third year in a row, we received an unmodified
report from Armanino, LLP on our annual audit. This
means that the audit was performed on schedule without
difficulty and that our financial statements "give a true
and fair view" of the organization. Our special thanks go
