I want to say that I appreciate the opportunity to be Treasurer of our Association.  Each year, the Annual Fund contributions of our members and friends make possible what we all do for the Ranch, current staff members, and for Scouting overall.

Be assured that we have active finance and investment committees ensuring that the funds you provide are managed properly and accounted for fully.  A sound budget is prepared annually and approved by the Board of Directors.  Our accounting records and financial statements are reviewed annually by an independent licensed certified public accountant.   Copies of the 2009 Financial Statements are available to any interested PSA member.  If you wish to have a copy, just contact me at jwp@uchicago.edu or send a note to Randy Saunders, our Executive Director.

Thanks so much for your gift to the 2010 Annual Fund.
