Financial Management

Financial Management -- 11% of Total Value
(62 points possible)

Poor financial management of a chapter is likely to have negative effects on overall chapter management. Implications may include a poor credit rating, loss of necessary chapter programs, deterioration of morale, and potentially even physical discomfort. Through discipline, consistent bookkeeping, qualified supervision, and fiscal control, the chapter will build an atmosphere of fiscal responsibility and security.

    1. A chapter budget is prepared by the treasurer and executive officer each semester or yearly, with approval by the chapter advisor.

Percentage allotments indicating the percentage of chapter funding to be spent on a particular event or area of concern will suffice. (i.e. Scholarship = 35%, Social = 15%, etc.) Remember, the budgets are for the Spring 2014 and Fall 2014 terms.
