I agree.  Especially if the officer has fiscal authority.

Copies of the end of reign report would be nice.

That could be as easily be said for local officers.  For many of the
offices, the purpose of the monthly report is to basically say "I'm
still here and doing my job", although that report might be a total
fabrication.  Some offices have severe reporting requirements.  As
treasurer, I was required to file more that 100 pages of reports a
year (*not* counting copies!)

It is hard to sustain such an output without some feedback. 
Something as simple as postcard that said "I (did/did not) receive
your report last month." would do much to prevent the feeling that 
your reports were disappearing into a black hole.
