Finance Officer

The Finance team on Enactus collectively manage the financial statement and conduct bookkeeping activities for all our projects, events and initiatives, including managing accounts receivable/payable, processing reimbursements, and updating budgets. The Finance team is ultimately responsible for providing each individual project and event team with financial information related to their specific projects so they can make educated decisions regarding their finances.

This year, the Finance team will work towards things like:

  1. Establish a structure to provide the project management team and project team with more frequent and accurate financial information to allow better decision-making with regards to the allocation and spending of funds; including communicating to members what their individual spending limits are within their role

  2. Updating projects budgets more frequently; being involved in the financial decisions with the project management team (i.e. making decisions on either fundraising more or spending less in the case of a deficit; or ensuring that cash-flow is well planned so there is no shortage of cash during low-fundraising periods)

  3. Use Quickbooks Online for all financial transactions and budgeting

  4. Process reimbursements on a rolling basis and having a better understanding of the expenses that are incurred, but for which the member has not yet submitted a reimbursement request (i.e. knowing what each individual member is planning on spending before they spend)
