Reminder: Revenue Base Worksheets and 2020 CAFR's Due August 2nd
At the June 15 IRMA BOD meeting, the membership concurred with staff’s recommendation that COVID revenue not be included in the IRMA revenue base. After analysis of the issue, in consultation with IRMA’s actuaries, the conclusion was that COVID revenue should not be considered in members’ revenues bases. Please list all COVID revenue amounts separately on the revenue base worksheet, so we can assure these revenues are excluded. Revenue base worksheets must be completed and returned no later than August 2. The revenue base worksheet requires members to report revenues and submit their CAFRs. This information is critical as we prepare the IRMA 2022 budget. The revenue base worksheet can be found on the IRMA website, or you can email Ashli Motyka at ashlim@irmarisk.org for a copy.
