It would seem that the Autistic Self Advocacy Network was more fiscally responsible in 2015 than in previous years. However, looking at their tax form gives a clearer picture:
I admit that I'm not an accountant or any kind of tax expert. Perhaps there's something in the forms that I'm not reading correctly. However, it would seem from a perusal of their statement that if this trend keeps up over a period of years this organization could become bankrupt at some point. Though they still are in the black as far as their total assets are concerned.
Ari Ne'eman has announced that he will step down as president of ASAN and still serve on the board while his colleague Julia Bascom will take over as president of ASAN. The timing of this may have been a coincidence, however, Gadfly has speculated that Ne'eman was counting on an appointment to a high fallutin' disabilities post in a Hillary Clinton administration. In response to Donald Trump, Ne'eman has stated, "I don't work with fascists." This means that if he keeps his promise, he would decline the same post in Donald Trump's new administration when they start January 20. It should also mean that Samantha Crane or whoever else holds ASAN's seat on the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee should resign as soon as Trump is Inaugurated. Somehow I don't think that's going to happen.
Perhaps there's another reason for his stepping down as president. Maybe he didn't want to be in charge of a sinking ship.
