Annual Report of the Treasurer

The end of the year 2013 brought me the wonderful challenge of working as UEP treasurer following the previous treasurer Virginie Woisard. It has been a very rich and fruitful experience that I still learn from day after day. Below is a briefed report of the treasury in the period from 10/2013-10/2014. The report was presented in the UEP congress held in Moscow in October 2014. I would like to extend my thanks to Virginie Woisard, the previous UEP treasurer for the wonderful work she did with the treasury in her term.

Closure of the account in France and opening of the new account in Helsinki, Finland.
By the treasurer shifting from France to Finland and due to the fact that the UEP is registered in Finland, the board decided to open a new UEP bank account in Finland and close the previous one in France. The total amount transferred from the old account to the new one was 10 517 euros. The new account was opened in Nordea bank which is one of the leading international banks in Europe.

New methods of payments
UEP is now having members from outside Europe and members who prefer to use credit card payments or Paypal payments. Accordingly, we added a new page to the UEP website which has been working since 10/2013. Through the page it is possible to pay the membership fees through Paypal or direct credit card payments.

Income and expenses.
During the period from 10/2013 till 10/2014, the UEP had an income of 22 077,89 and expenses of 5 386,87 euros. By the time I presented the report in Moscow in October 2014 we had a surplus of 16 691,02 euros.

Projections for expenses
8000 euros for the UEP honorary members’ medals (one-time payment, medals enough for 10-15 years)900 euros for the pins (one-time payment, pins enough for 5-7 years)Brussel training. UEP grant for two residents of phoniatrics. 500 euros for each.

UEP office, we will need to increase the hours of our staff, may be up to 500 euros per month, so 6000 euros.

Projections for income
UEP congress 2014 is making a surplus of 3000 euros.
Sponsors of about 2 500 euros.
Memberships of about 11 000- 13 000 euros.

As the new treasurer of UEP and on behalf of the board, we moved the bank account of UEP to Toulouse. Until last year, our account was on the responsibility of Peter Oppermann in Switzerland. The main reason of this transfer was that the account was in Swiss franc and that the membership fees had to be be paid in this currency.

At that time, the payment of the fees had to be performed by a bank transfer with a cost of about 3.5 Euros. We are looking for other facilities, as SEPA protocol or credit card.

The UEP members will get a call for fee in the beginning of 2012, 7 members did already pay for 2012.
