Approval of Minutes of July 2015 Board of Directors Meeting

On MOTION (Chase, Scott) the Board approved the minutes of the July 2015 meeting.

Approval of the Fiscal 2015 Audit

Matt Duval and Deborah Crowne with UHY LLP reviewed the procedures and presented findings from the FY 2015 audit. Theirs was a clean and unmodified opinion of financial management for the previous fiscal year. On MOTION (Bradberry, Blouin) the Board approved the audit report for FY 2015.

Treasurer Bradberry and Sibu Ramamurthy, Senior Director for Finance, lead the discussion of association finance issues as of the end of the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2016. Barbra A. Gustis, Senior Director of Meetings and Business Partnerships, presented an analysis of the fiscal implications of implementing a reduced annual meeting registration rate for Emeritus members of the Association. On MOTION (Bradberry, Robinson) the Board approved the offering of a 50% discount on the Early Bird annual meeting registration for Emeritus members of the Association.

Sibu Ramamurthy provided an analysis of trends and issues from the first quarter of the current fiscal year that might affect the yearend results. Despite record attendance, revenues for the July 2015 meeting were lower than budget by approximately $250,000. This was offset by expense reductions of $100,000. The early trend on PharmCAS revenues shows continuing decreases in applicants and applications which will be watched very closely through the December application deadline. More students are applying for early decisions which affects the average number of applications per applicant early in the cycle.

Ramamurthy reviewed several capital investment projects in the information technology area, including the likely need to implement a new association management system (membership database). The current database vendor was selected over ten years ago and was recently acquired by a vendor with a different system. The AACP web site was last updated more than five years ago and it is anticipated that a major enhancement will be initiated in FY 2017.

The status and finances of Professions Quest, the wholly owned subsidiary producing Mimycx, were reviewed. A national sales manager was brought on board in October 2015 and weekly faculty development webinars are now being hosted by PQ staff. …
