Committee Leadership Details


Budget and Finance

Committee Description
The Budget and Finance Committee is a standing committee, exempted from the 6-member rule. It normally has 3 members and the Treasurer, ex officio. It's role is to advise the President, and when appropriate, the Trustees of the Association, on issues related to finances, budget, and investments. This function includes advice on budget planning; preparation and reporting; on investment policy and strategies; and on other financial matters referred to it by the President or the Executive Officer. No initiatives that require more than a 1% budget increase, other than those approved by the Executive Committee, can be proposed and finally approved at the same Board meeting. Such initiatives can be provisionally approved and shall become final 30 days afterwards, unless the Budget and Finance Committee advises the Board to reconsider the decision. In that circumstance, final approval would require an email poll of the Board.
