We’re proud to be truly independent, politics free and focused on offering our members the ability to be able to continue running their club on their terms, within a professional, credible framework.
Accordingly, we feel it’s important we’re both open and honest on how we’re funded and what fees are spent on.
How We’re Funded
We receive no funding what so ever from any public, government or private organisations. At present, all of our income is entirely self-generated through the trade of our organisation. Our income sources are roughly set as follows;
A majority of our income is achieved through new student members being registered with our organisation, and new clubs joining. The income generated through renewals is misrepresented by the above chart as we’re growing faster and faster year to year – meaning we’re gaining new members faster than our current members are renewing.
All of our income is generated through the regular activities our association trades with.
How We Spend
Our outgoings are spread largely on the type of exposures you would anticipate. Association insurance provisions, alongside stock and stationary type supplies make up the greatest source of our spending. In addition our payment gateway handling fees and I.T / Communications expenses are considerable.
We’re very proud to be indepedent, debt free and open on our finances. It helps our members better understand our current, healthy financial position. We also feel it helps potential and current members make an informed decision about whether or not we can be trusted with their precious club and business.
