Description: The mission of the finance committee is to plan and maintain our chapter’s financial path. There is much collaboration of fellow board members needed to craft a sound budget that is understood and adhered to by each chair.
There are three functions that this committee is responsible for:
The recruitment of quality new members
The retention of new members, especially through member benefit education
The overall renewal of our chapter
Participants on this committee will likely be asked to help vet potential members either through attending EO recruitment events or by meeting with candidates one-on-one.
“I joined to EO to gain a different perspective from other business owners outside my industry. From my brief experience thus far, it is clearly an organization that promotes invaluable business insight and feedback, but also promotes personal growth and development.”
