Simon Faivel, SIMNA’s Chair, reported on the company’s finances:
- SIMNA has received a grant from Equity Trustees. The term of the grant is $50k per year for two years (to June 2020). This confirms Lisa McGhee in post as SIMNA’s first employee.
- The 2017-18 Profit and Loss sheet shows a $15k gross profit through membership, but a net loss of $18k for the year. The Equity Trustee funding has helped to re-balance the books. SIMNA is in a good position now, looking forward.
Lisa McGhee, SIMNA’s Lead Doer and Connector, reported on the company’s activities:
- SIMNA’s member base comprised of 128 individuals, 14 small organisations and 18 large organisations at 30 June 2018. We need to engage more directly with organisational members, to ensure we are meeting their needs.
- SIMNA’s Organising Committees held 18 knowledge sharing events across the period. An average of 40 people attended each event. A wide range of workshops were facilitated.
Simon Faivel said: “I am delighted to share SIMNA Ltd.’s 2017-18 Annual Review with you. There has been much to celebrate over the last year that collectively we can be proud of. It is to SIMNA’s credit that talented professionals from a wide range of organisations continue to give their time to grow the work that we do.”
