annual-report

The November End-of-Month Financial Reports are attached. The reserve had dropped to $55,635, which is slightly below the target of $57,042. We received the first payment from the Clinard bequest in December, so I expect the reserve will be back above the target.

September 2017 End-of-Month Financial Report Released

annual-report

The September End-of-Month Financial Reports are attached. The reserve has improved, increasing to $136,544 versus a reserve target of $57,042.

The Brand Development/Political Materials Expenses at $58,244 has almost reached its annual budget of $60,000, with one quarter left in the year. Brand Development/Political Materials Revenues was at $49,974. We need to increase these amounts if we want headquarters to continue selling shirts and literature. Having our members wearing the Libertarian apparel and handing out literature helps build brand awareness.

I am seeking co-sponsors to increase both 26-Brand Development/Political Materials Revenue and 55-Brand Development/Political Materials Expenses from $60,000 each to $80,000 each.

Dr. Frank Clinard, Jr., of Los Alamos, NM, left a bequest of $111,863 to the LNC. His bequest was booked as revenue in June. The FEC has ruled that contribution limits apply to bequests. The LNC is still litigating the limit. The amount over the $33,900 limit for general funds is being placed in an escrow account.

Dr. Clinard (1933-2016) was the world authority on Radiation Damage in Materials at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Fellow of the American Ceramics Society, Libertarian candidate for New Mexico State Senate in 1992, and served as the LPNM Public Relations Director.

The Brand Development/Political Materials Expense is running above its budget. Preliminary projections for May has it reaching its annual budget of $30,000.
