There are a few items to report from the Treasurer’s remote desktop:

  • We are in a strong financial position with a balance of $145,334 in our operating budget and $269,771 in long-term investments. Thank you for renewing your memberships!
  • We have accepted a generous gift of $50,000 from Nike Inc. to support ASB efforts to increase the diversity of biomechanics as a discipline and increase access to opportunity for under-represented biomechanists.
  • ASB is transitioning to Podium for conference and association management services. This will offload some book-keeping and bill-paying responsibilities, simplify the transition to a new Treasurer after each election, and allow more focus on strategic priorities of the society instead of day-to-day operations.
  • The next order of business is to write award checks—my favorite part of the job!

I look forward to reconnecting with you at the upcoming annual meeting. Happy summer!
