Audit and Finance Committee

The Audit and Finance Committee is led by the Chapter’s sitting president and performs an annual review of the chapter’s financial records. This is a great short term commitment.  There is one meeting held each August at which the Committee reviews the previous year’s financial report, books and records to be sure everything agrees.  No accounting or financial experience is required. 

Budget Committee

Yet another great, short term opportunity is the budget committee which is led by the current Treasurer.  This committee is responsible for establishing the Chapter’s budget for the upcoming fiscal year.  The committee meets early in August to determine a proposed budget for the coming year.  They do this by studying the previous year’s budget, assessing how well that it met the Chapter’s needs; and estimating the coming year’s financial requirements. After the budget is drafted, the Chapter Treasurer presents it to the Board of Directors for approval.
