Abstract

On occasion I find it irresistible to take the financial These funds in 1983 represented 1.14 times the total pulse of the Society, a matter to which I (like most of expenditures; by 1992 the expenditures had grown but the membership, unfortunately) devote almost no the general funds had increased even more rapidly, attention almost all of the time. The only source for this then representing 1.49 times the expenditures and examination that does not require a special request is approaching $9,000,000. The question is a simple the Report of the Auditors, included in the account of one: What is the purpose of the general funds? the Annual Meeting of the Society that is published in This is hardly the first time that some concern on the June issue of the Bulletin. I have most recently this point has arisen. Most recently, in 1988, as nearly looked at these reports from the past ten years, with as can be determined from a reading of the minutes of selected results shown in Table 1. the Council, a suggestion was made that the receipts First, there has been a consistent annual excess of from interest and dividends, approximately equal to receipts
