How often do we meet? The Finance Team meets about 6-8 times from August through November for planning the giving campaign and preparing the budget. It meets on an as needed the basis the rest of the year.
How much of a time commitment? The Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, Financial Secretary, and Assistant Financial Secretary spend a considerable amount of time during the year performing the duties of their positions.
