EJA Finances - A Summary
The EJA is a voluntary organisation - nobody gets paid. Of course, the EJA does spend some money to reimburse the EJA board members for their expenses (phone, mailing, travel costs to EJA business meetings, etc.). The EJA financial activities can be summarized as follows:
- As a financial startup, the EJA each year offers a loan to EJC organisers. This loan is deducted (=paid back) from the prereg income before the convention, and so it's overall neutral.
- The preregistration for EJCs (which is provided by the EJA) is neutral. All preregistration funds are only collected by the EJA and then transfered to the local organisers.
- The EJA has no regular, reliable income. To support its work, the EJA mainly relies on surplus made by the European Juggling conventions which is shared with the EJA. If an EJC closes with a loss, the EJA has no income.
