History

  • (not yet) Dec 4 2020 - Vote announced on the mailing list
  • TBD DATE - Language locked in.
  • TBD DATE - Vote of the membership on this budget.

Background

PS1 brings in over 200k per year. Some of that money has to be spent on things such as rent and electricity (I assume per the bylaws) and some of it the membership gets to decide how to spend it. The part that the membership controls could be done via 10's or 100's of individual votes throughout the year, but there is something to be said for having one big vote at the beginning of the year, and that is what this is all about. There does not have to be any money allocated for additional votes, and as the organizations financial position changes we will have more or less money to work with.

The budget spreadsheet is to help predict, but not define how money will be saved or spent. Only what is in the language of this vote does.

Aims

This budget is designed with the following goals:

  • Make sure there is savings set aside for 10 full months of operating expenses.
  • Set aside funds for other emergency expenses such as health and safety, building maintenance/improvements/code compliance, and city occupancy.
  • Authorize the Board to spend money on normal administrative expenses not already authorized by the bylaws.
  • Predict expenditures based on a conservative membership model that shows 0% growth based on January 2021 membership and income calculations.

Additional Notes

  • For additional documentation and calculations please see the [ 2021 PS:One Fiscal Year Budget] Google Docs.
  • Events (aka Meals and Entertainment) is a budget chaired by the Events Volunteer. Funds are allocated to those roles, but are considered part of the administrative budget.
  • Funding of savings goals/accounts should be amortized over the year. Spending in other categories can still occur before these goals are met.

Language

This vote is to authorize the budget for the fiscal year of 2021, which goes into effect January 1, 2021 and expires December 31, 2021.
