PRESENTATION: How Do We DO Dues?
As self governing organizations, we are able to manage Chapter budgets and utilize International/National finances-but, what does that really mean? Most of our Finance chairs are Accountant or Business majors, so we assume that they understand the process of membership dues. The Chapter Budget, however, is something that should be planned and agreed upon in advance; this isn't a cross-our-fingers-and-hope-we-have-money situation! Or is it... Talking with members about dues is two-fold: how to explain the duty and responsibility and how to organize, structure, and set goals for the Chapter. Membership exists in the Zoom chat as much as it thrives to change local & global communities! Conversation around money isn't just for those good at math; every member has a voice in deciding how their chapter functions. Finding new and creative ways to reach chapter goals while managing a budget IS possible!
1. Increase communication skills with members regarding finances and operations.
2. Create academic year goals that meet the mission of your organization/chapter.
3. Enhance fiscal responsibility for all members and functions.
