An interesting arrangement... certainly moving a bit in this direction
would be useful (certainly for bookkeeper etc). I guess the harder thing
(for us) is finding members who are accountants by trade and
willing/able to donate some of their time.
My guess is a LUG has a better hope than LA of having
accountants/finance people in the ranks.
