The committee is responsible for setting financial policy and rules for Edmonton Branch that are in keeping with the FSNA National Office guidelines and generally accepted accounting principles. The committee also arranges for the annual audit of the branches financial records.
This committee is normally chaired by the branch Treasurer and both the Assistant Treasurer and the Purchaser, along with others, are members.
The Treasurer is responsible for receiving monies and depositing it in the branch’s bank account, issuing cheques to pay legitimate expenses, maintaining the branch financial records, preparing financial statements and reporting on branch finances to Board of Directors meetings as well as delivering financial records to the auditor for the annual audit.
The Assistant Treasurer acts as Treasurer when the Treasurer is absent.
The Purchaser seeks economies and “best deals” on branch purchases.
This committee meets at the call of the chair or on the request of two finance committee members.
