I will do my best to have the info to the board by next Thursday, but I am
not positive I will be done by then.  I finished reconciling the accounts
for March, and am almost done April.  I am hoping to be done April and
starting May by the beginning of next week.  The accounts are taking extra
long to reconcile b/c we switched merchant providers and began accepting
Euros as payment beginning in March.  So the combination of those 2 things
making it more difficult to reconcile, and the fact that I was out 8 weeks
has me pretty behind.  I know everyone is anxious to see our financial
statements, and I am going as quickly as I can.  Hopefully I will have it
out by next Thursday, but if not it shouldn't be too much later.

Also, I suggest we do an audit every 2-3 years.  I don't believe having this
review is necessary for this year.  We did implement all of the changes that
were brought to our attention in last year's audit.  I think the books are
in good shape...once I get caught up that is =)

I don't think we require an audit for 08 we did one prior year and I believe
we made some accounting changes as a result. Have they all been implemented
at this point?

However as a organization we do need the independent services of a 3rd party
CPA accountanting firm with non-profit experience, quarterly to reconcile
budget vs., actual and file taxes for the foundation and produce details
donation receipts, create  reports of money in and money out and publish
this data to be used to educate the membership of our status as a org.

This function is not day to day book keeping accounts receivable/accounts
payable, expenses that Alison is doing part-time today.

Per the Board meeting yesterday Alison was tasked with accounting to be
caught up by Thursday of next week as well as detail on budget ad budget
