Breaking OSM Financial News!

For the second time this calendar and fiscal year, OSM has released most of the financial reports originally promised to be released monthly.  If my math is correct (and it should be as it is a simple calculation of 2 divided by 10), then OSM has achieved its commitment 20% of the time so far this year. And if they do it 2 more times they will hit a 33% compliance rate. I wouldn't bet on even that poor of a record given their history  in the last couple of years. Truth be told, this is the first time this year we have been privileged to see the monthly budget versus actual figures.

So, what stands out in a quick review?

Alice Grevet started maintaining the minutes for the OSM board meetings starting in December, 2010 and has been completing all minutes available since then. In the March 21, 2011 board meeting there was a motion and no discussion to include an officer position of Assistant Secretary and Alice was installed by unanimous consent. According to the Bylaws, OSM can create additional Officer positions as it sees fit. One would ask, however, why the Secretary suddenly could not handle the workload of completing one set of board minutes per month and indeed has not since December, 2010. Now, if there had been open discussion about needing to train a replacement for the Secretary, I could see such a development but not a word was documented. What else is being withheld from the Joomla Community?
