Andersen, David   VP Finance Report   (2012 was a good year financially for the System Dynamics Society. We posted a net income of $128,189 and our overall equity grew from $901,031 at the opening of our fiscal year to $1,093,591 at the close of the fiscal year. The Society’s financial position for 2012 was helped by a very strong showing at the St. Gallen conference. Our budget for 2014 projects a loss in Net Ordinary Income of $80,662. However, I have budgeted for an expected Investment Income of $78,790 so that our overall Net Income will be a net loss of $1,871. The Society’s budget for 2014 has three line items being supported with investment income—(1) Awards (Dana Meadows and Forrester), (2) the PhD Luncheon, and (3) Chapter Development Fund. These three lines in the budget come to $28,449 out of our investment income.) Report
