GLBA board chair Brad McPhee summarized the current fiscal year as a period of stability and a continuation of the previous year, which he said was characterized by organization and restraint. The board had had some excellent ideas, but the implementation was weak and the board recognized this issue late in the year. There were no records of financials without a forensic accounting being done.
