In accordance with the duties defined in the P.E.O. Constitution and the Bylaws and Standing Rules of the District of Columbia (D.C.) Chapter, the Finance Committee submits the following report:

Reports of the D.C. chapter officers and committees containing accounts of receipts and expenditures of D.C. chapter funds have been examined. Audits of the books of the treasurer of the D.C. chapter have been studied by this committee and found in agreement with reports of the respective officers. The financial report of the committees on other D.C. chapter funds have been examined.

The budget for the current P.E.O. year 2023-2024, retroactive to April 1, has been prepared after careful study of the receipts and expenditures for the past year and is submitted to the convention for adoption. That budget reflects:

  • Sixteen active D.C. Chapters;
  • 497 active members of DC Chapter, a decrease of 10 members from last year;
  • An in-person D.C. Chapter Convention in May 2024;
  • Representation at Convention of International Chapter by eight Chapter members;
  • Officer Expenses; and
  • Technology/Website Committee expenses that allow for completion of the D.C. Chapter website refresh and on-going maintenance.

In addition, the committee recommends a transfer of $4,000 from the General Fund to the Convention Fund.
