The NCAPA Finance Committee oversees the Academy’s finances. The committee understands that financial statements, budgets, and accounting can be intimidating to many PAs and assists its members to become more comfortable in these areas. The committee serves in an internal audit capacity and provides oversight to the annual budgetary income and expenses, the Building Maintenance Fund, the Strategic Projects Fund, and the Reserve Fund. The committee works closely with the NCAPA Treasurer and the Executive Director and administrative staff to ensure that resources are utilized in a manner consistent with the strategic plan.
Committee Roles and Expectations
Per NCAPA policy, the Finance Committee will not exceed a total of nine members and the NCAPA President, President-Elect, Treasurer, and Continuing Education Committee Chair are automatic members of the committee. The committee typically meets an average of 3-4 times a year through virtual zoom meetings, to review financial statements, proposed budgets, and to review annual financial review or audit statements.
The Finance Committee Chair runs committee meetings and is also expected to attend all NCAPA board of directors meetings (4-5 times annually). The Chair works with the NCAPA staff liaison to create the proposed annual budget, board reports, and to assist with any financial questions that may arise. The Chair may also have occasional need to approve proposed, unforeseen expenditures from one of the special funds.
Committee members are expected to attend committee meetings, review and reply to all committee communications, and participate in the budgeting process as necessary and as is possible. Committee members should also be able to review financial statements each month and document that this has been done (10-15 minutes per month). Committee members are NOT expected to be accountants and questions are always welcome.
