Committee Mandate

The Finance Subcommittee, a subcommittee of the ASH Executive Committee, is responsible for balancing short- and long-term goals and obligations to assess, monitor, and make recommendations regarding ASH’s long-term financial sustainability. To fulfill its purpose, the subcommittee has the following responsibilities:

·         Gain an understanding of ASH’s financial underpinning

·         Assess risks – both internal and external – that may have a fiscal impact on ASH’s business model

·         Make recommendations to the ASH Executive Committee regarding the aggregate amount of appropriate programmatic and operational expenditures

·         Request review of specific programs

·         Suggest appropriate fee increases

·         Review composition of building debt

·         Oversee and periodically review the number of finances to be held in reserve

The membership of the Finance Subcommittee includes the President-Elect, Vice President, Treasurer (who serves as Chair), and the two 4th-year Councillors. Additionally, the chair and three members of the Committee on Investment and Audit serve as liaison members of the subcommittee for terms congruent with their service on the parent committee. Members of the subcommittee are expected to participate in conference calls and email discussions, as necessary.
