There was once again, as last year, a modest increase in members” fees and donations. A major change in cash flow resulted from the Gordon Foundation grant for professional secretarial assistance and from project grants for the conference on accidental nuclear war, the Toronto Chapter lecture series and Walter Dorn’s directory project.
My chief impression from this year as treasurer and as a member of the executive committee concerns the complexity of our affairs and the way that complexity is steadily increasing. The complexity for the treasury comes from the increasing importance of the Chapters in our operations. Their accounts form a part of the reports for which we are responsible to Revenue Canada and a lot of coordination and cooperation on the part of the chapters is required.
