Joining the Finance Committee introduces you to a fun and collegial group of finance nerds who like to talk about money and policy. This is one of the key nuts-and-bolts administrative committees, and it is crucial to the effective and responsible functioning of the fellowship.
Joining this lively, collegial group allows the member to learn more about the financial workings of QUUF, to work on “big picture” issues as well as joy of financial strategizing. It is satisfying knowing that you are doing vital work that supports the fellowship.The Fellowship needs people to keep it on the “straight and narrow,” financially speaking. This committee keeps the fellowship financially healthy and able to fulfill its vision and mission.
Ability to read and understand financial reports ; comfort with numbers and arithmetic; interest in policies and procedures; ability to meet on a regular monthly basis. Comfort with spreadsheets would be a plus.
If you take on a specific task, we will thoroughly train you, but otherwise little training is necessary. Every summer we meet for a long retreat and policy meeting to set the annual agenda. Estimated time commitment is 10-12 hours per month.
