OKC Swing Club Financial Update

Here’s the Short Version of the financial update: Expenses are up, income is

down; time to turn that picture around.

Longer Version: The Swing Club has had six months this year where our

expenses exceeded our income. Obviously, we need to reverse that trend in

order to have a secure and vibrant future.

The sobering reality is that the club is $8,000 in the red for this past fiscal year.

While we have enough in the bank to cover that loss, we clearly need to make a

shift so that we are reliably operating in the black.

The board is deeply committed to getting the Swing Club on sound financial

footing and to making our club the best it’s ever been. We’ve been through

financial challenges in the past, and come through stronger than before. We are

looking at creative solutions, and trying out new ideas. The $5 beginners class

& dance on Saturday, Aug. 2nd was a great success, thanks to everyone who

invited friends, shared it on Facebook, and reached out through their

workplaces.

We ask you, our membership, to help bring in new people and to welcome

beginning dancers and help them to feel a part of the club. Does your workplace

have a wellness program where employees could earn points by joining a dance

class? Are you part of a young professionals group that would be interested in

something new and fun? Do you have friends who are just waiting for an

invitation to get off the couch and onto the dance floor?

Members are welcome to attend monthly board meetings and contribute to the

discussion. You can also leave comments in the comment box up front (all notes

are read at each board meeting) or to talk with board members before or after

class.

I love WCS and enjoy dancing more than words can express. I treasure the

friendships I’ve made here. We have an amazing club and we ask for your help

in keeping it strong and healthy.
