opportunities to build value for membership.
Governance expenses decreased from $779,767 in FY12 to
$593,210 in FY13, a 24-percent drop, with reduced expenditures
from the Board of Directors and Executive Committee having the
largest impact.
The products and services area saw its expenses decline
by 28 percent in fiscal year 2013, as reduced exhibit costs,
expenditures for the AANS Annual Scientific Meeting video
program and survey resulted in a $115,688 reduction.
AANS committees and taskforces also decreased their expenses
in fiscal year 2013, leading to a reduction of more than $440,000.
The 28-percent drop in expenses between FY12 and FY13 was
in large part to reduced expenses by the International Outreach,
