Pursuant to the motion from Bediako approved at the December 17th committee
meeting, the single agenda item for this meeting was the WBAI financial
CFO Lonnie Hicks discussed WBAI cash flow, budget, and balance sheet items, and
responded to questions from committee members. WBAI is short $50,000-$60,000
with no major red flags.
A potential cash flow problem was handled through early distribution of CPB
funds. If WBAI does not realize $1.4 million from its January drive (which can
be estimated through credit card receipts by the first week of February), that
will be a red flag prompting implementation of contingency plans for local
expense reduction and revenue reforecast so as to avoid impact on other units.
As of today WBAI has $328,000 in the bank with monthly expenses of $230,000.
The CFO is working on his year-end report to the PNB and will include a
discussion of WBAI issues in that document. Updated financials will be
available for committee review in two weeks.
Motion from Adelson that the committee meet via teleconference on January 11th
at 12:30 pm PST to finalize the committee's recommendations to the PNB.
Motion passed without objection.
The meeting was adjourned without objection at 2:23 pm PST.
