THE YEAR ENDING 30TH JUNE, 1906. I have pleasure in submitting the following Report, together with the Financial Statement, for the year ending the 30th June, 1906.
The Statement shows, that considering the exceptional circumstances of the past year, including as it did the visit of the British Association, and the expenditure inseparable from such an undertaking in South Africa, the Association is in a sound financial position.
From the Revenue Account it will be noticed that the receipts during the year under review are considerably less than those shown in the preceding account. This may be accounted for mainly by the decrease in the members elected with the consequent decrease in the amounts received from Entrance Fees and Life Membership subscriptions, and the large number of subscriptions which were paid in advance last year, which somewhat abnormally increased the receipts as shown in the previous year's accounts.
The Expenditure during the year just completed, on the other hand, shows a considerable increase over that of the preceding year, due to the visit of the British Association, necessitating a total payment of £920 to that body, as well as increasing the General Expenses, etc., besides an increase in Grants for scientific research of £120 ; and the printing of the Report for 1905, which in former years has been borne by subscriptions generously given for that purpose.
The Balance Sheet shows that your liabilities are amply covered by your assets, there remaining in the Bank after their payment a sum of £174 195. od., from which will have to be met the expenses of this (Kimberley) Meeting. It will be noticed that nothing has been taken into account for the amount of subscriptions outstanding in arrear which amount to £482, nor has any value been placed upon the volumes of Proceedings (volumes I and 2) of which there is a good stock on hand.
The Endowment Fund account, which is credited with all receipts from Entrance Fees and Life Membership subscriptions, now stands at £,819, of which amount £700 has been placed by your Trustees on fixed deposit at 41 per cent. per annum. The interest on this sum will be included annually in the Revenue of the Association in accordance with Section 11 (6) of the Constitution.
Assuming that the Members of the Association pay their subscriptions during the coming year, as they have done in the past, I believe it will be possible for the Association at its next Annual General Meeting, to largely increase its grants for scientific research, and thus forward in a very practical way the aims and objects for which it has been founded.
The total Membership of the Association is 1,322, showing a net increase of 33 since the last Report was submitted.
These figures show that taking the population of the country into account, there is ample scope for bringing the Association more prominently before the people of South Africa, and in this manner increasing their interest in the advancement of science. 30th June, 1906.
