AMWA Annual Financial Report, 2019-2020
It has been a pleasure serving as Treasurer for the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) over the past year, and I am pleased to provide this financial report for the 2019-2020 fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2020. I begin this report acknowledging that during the last 2 quarters of the fiscal year, the COVID-19 pandemic caused severe disruption to everyday life and a recession. The leadership of AMWA quickly put a plan in place to minimize the impact of the pandemic. AMWA staff successfully converted to a remote work environment, and expenses were curtailed. Meetings and travel plans were cancelled, and vacant staff positions were put on hold.
The success of the 2019 annual conference in San Diego, popularity of live webinars, increase in membership, and careful management of expenses helped to sustain AMWA through this uncertain time. The full finanical effects of the COVID-19 pandemic may not be experienced until next year.
