The Financial Forecast for 2013 report was distributed. It includes expenditures for 2012 and previous years. Monthly and quarterly financial reports are available upon request.
The SRCC Executive Committee has approved the following recommendation from the Finance Committee: spend the remaining funds in SRCC account at Austin Community Foundation on a capital project within SRCC boundaries. By closing the account, SRCC will no longer pay fees which have been slowly depleting our funds. The membership is asked to submit proposals for capital projects that will benefit the entire SRCC area. The deadline will be June 30, 2013. The process will soon be announced. There will soon be an online form where users can submit proposals (online options, forms distributed at meetings, etc.). The Executive Committee will select finalists and the general membership will vote for the projects in November.
