Received the financial statements as of May 31, 2011.

As of May 31, NASW’s total asset position was $15.5 million. Overall, assets increased by $1.1million from the same time last year, due to an increase in cash and long-term investments. Revenue year-to-date totaled $16.4 million. Dues revenue, on an accrual basis, was $9 million, down $156,000 from the same time last year. Expenses year-to-date totaled $14.9 million, down $1.2 million, with savings due to outsourcing of the member call center and continuing cost containment. Operating revenue exceeded operating expenses by $1.5 million.

Accepted revision to bylaws Article XII.A, to ensure greater chapter flexibility.

Previous language specified the geographic breakdown of the 56 chapters of NASW. New language reads: “Under NASW National Board established policy, no more than 56 chapters may be formed at various levels, including state, regional and or/other appropriate geographic designations. The Association shall support chapters as appropriate to promote its general purposes and objectives.”
