The finances of the Association for Documentary Editing have improved over the last year. This year, we had an increase of $6,438 in the general budget, giving us unrestricted assets of nearly $61,000. This increase was a nice change from three consecutive years of minor deficit spending. The increase can be attributed to several things: first, there were approximately forty more dues-paying members this year; second, the dues increase was in effect for the entire year; third, interest rates more than doubled from the previous year; and finally, several of the expenditures were much less than budgeted. While the addition of an administrative assistant resulted in some spending that was not anticipated, we reaped the benefits of the host institution assuming some general expenses like postage and office supplies.
