Actually I do own my own business and having a cash surplus is totally a pipe dream. I know most businesses operate on a much tighter budget then non profits do. The only reason why a group that is showing growth would need a cash buffer is for long term capitol improvements. And If you ask me developing a national headquarters is a huge speculation with those resources. This just another example of top loading and doing on the backs of the new rank and file.
We are clearly not the only revenue stream, what happens to the others . Like the ad's that are overwhelming the site? With the net and the weekly newsletter do we really even need the Mag?
Or better yet do we really need the weeklies and the salaried positions that generates it?
