Re: [DML] DOA - Just a few thoughts...



I can see some of your points Steve, but given the dark cloud of the past and all the speculation, I think total transparency would work best

In either case, my original request was just for member count

I've been down the club road before, ran shows, managed funds, dealt with sqaublings and internal politics before.  Even served a couple terms as President.  So I know what's involved.  My experience has been that things like membership numbers (not names) have always been made publicly available, and club finances are open to ALL MEMBERS, but not made public.  Our goal was always to hold shows and fund raisers with the intent of donating to charity at the end of the year.  (Frequently the Special Olympics)  We only carried over sufficient funds to get us started the next year and we would publicly announce the amount we were able to donate at the end of the year.  Now if someone was considering membership and honestly had a question about the club's finances I would have gladly answered, but I do believe that to post the finances as publicly as the internet is just asking to get criticized by anonymous know-it-alls who have no real stake, but
 just want to hear themselves speak.
