I am hereby making a Motion that moving forward AWCI change our financial year end from June 30 to December 31.

Rationale: Matching dues to the proper periods has become muddy. Our membership dues are collected based upon a calendar year.  I feel this will add clarity to the understanding of our financial position. This will be accomplished by creating an interim financial via our new Auditor Gady, following their work to produce the 6/30/12 YE financial.
