GAANS is a financially driven community. We are not a ‘not for profit business’ We are a multi-national collaboration of business owners who know the importance of running a financially viable GAANS Community. GAANS exists for our licensed members and therefore we must achieve a financial platform to ensure that GAANS growth is both rapid and financially viable.
GAANS uses a co-operative business model, which operates for it’s shareholders and is structured to provide a financial return for those members of it’s co-operative. When you become a licensed Trainer or Coach with GAANS you immediately become a shareholder. At the end of each financial year a decision is made on whether GAANS pays its members a financial dividend or to invest its finances into future products or resources for its members.
We present our members with a set of financial, audited set of accounts, annually and all our financial decisions are determined democratically by its members. We have a registered Charted Accountant on our Advisory Group, to ensure strict financial management is maintained.
We have a number of future income streams being explored to further secure a strong financial base. An example of this is we have planned online training development as an income source, for our members to earn income from, directly through the GAANS website.
“ GAANS exists for its members. All funds received by GAANS goes solely towards promoting GAANS training services. ”
