The Hart House Finance Committee provides opportunities to learn valuable skills in financial management by participating in conversations and decisions about budgetary and financial policies and procedures. We welcome students from all disciplines (it’s an opportunity for students enrolled in finance-related degree programs to bring theory to practice; and we also provide educational training sessions for students without a financial background). Skills acquired through involvement as a committee member can be applied to both individual and organizational financial management.
The Finance Committee mandate applies to all financial aspects of Hart House with particular focus on the following:
– Participate in advising the Board of Stewards on policies that affect the financial management of the House
– Analyze the House’s annual budget and make recommendations for its long-range plans
– Consider capital expense requests
– Monitor financial operating performance
– Participate in the Special Projects (an annual project where teams will explore a particular financial/accounting topic which will affect the improvement of a Hart House operation)
