Volunteers Needed for CDA Committees
CDA depends on volunteer contributions by its members to undertake important activities. There is an urgent need for volunteers to assist one standing committee and one task group as they oversee CDA’s finances and help decide how CDA money is spent.
CDA is re-establishing the Finance Committee to help oversee the Association’s budgeting and its investment policies. Details on the Committee’s mandate are available by clicking here.
The committee is seeking one or two CDA members who are not on the Board of Directors to review existing financial policies, draft new ones for Board approval, and to oversee a proposed Investment Advisory Committee which will manage CDA’s investments. This is a two-year commitment.
Expense Policy Task Group
CDA’s Board of Directors has struck a Task Group to draft a policy that describes the conditions for which travel expenses for volunteers and contracted personnel, who are acting on CDA business or providing official representation on behalf of CDA, will be reimbursed by CDA. Details on the Task Group’s mandate are available by clicking here.
The task group is seeking a minimum of two CDA members who are not on the Board of Directors to provide their independent views on what expenses CDA should cover for its volunteers and staff. This task group is to complete its work by September 2016.
