The financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, reflect positive earnings for the Society.
The Society continues to experience financial growth as a result of maintaining its revenue sources and at the same time controlling its expenses. In addition, the Society's investment portfolios had positive returns. This is especially important for the Society's Research & Education Foundation, as its ability to fund grants is directly impacted by the return on investments. The continued financial growth of the Society has helped increase its reserves, which helps protect RSNA from any significant economic downturns and provides available funds for future programs and initiatives.
KPMG LLP completed its annual audit of the Society's financial statements issuing an unqualified opinion, indicating that KPMG LLP found no material differences to the financial information presented in the Society's year-end financial statements. In addition, KPMG LLP indicated to the Audit Committee that it did not find any material weaknesses in the Society's internal accounting procedures.
The following Balance Sheet and Statement of Activities have been condensed from the year-end audit report prepared by KPMG LLP, as of June 30, 2006. The detailed audited report is kept on file at RSNA Headquarters: Radiological Society of North America, 820 Jorie Blvd, Oak Brook, IL 60523. It is available for review there by RSNA members.
