The UUCP Finance Committee’s role in UUCP is to follow the Finance Policy.
Responsibilities and Scope
The Finance Committee is responsible for the day to day collection and distribution and documentation of all cash and non-cash donations to UUCP, the development of a yearly budget for presentation to the Executive Committee, and management of the UUCP checking, savings and investment accounts. The UUCP Treasurer is a member of the Committee. The committee has no budget lines.
General Committee Expectations
It is the expectation of the UUCP congregation and Board of Directors that all committees will transparently conduct their business within the letter and spirit of the UUCP vision, mission, and bylaws. Committees are required to do the following:
- Once per year, provide a short written report to the Board summarizing the committee’s activities during the previous year and plans for the year ahead. This report can be included as part of a budget request but is required whether a committee requests funding from the Board or not. This report must include the name and contact information of the Committee’s current chair.
- Stay within their allotted budget (if applicable).
- Retain meeting minutes or some other record of committee decisions and activities.
- Notify the Board whenever the committee chair changes.
