•Prudent budgeting and investing

•Financial stability

•Monetary resources of the CoDA Fellowship.

Finance Committee Responsibilities:

Calculate and report our "prudent reserve* to the Fellowship at the annual Service Conference. We may report it at other times of year if needed.

Annually review proposed budgets submitted by committees, boards, & Fellowship Services.

The committee considers whether or not CoDA’s income supports the budget requests and allows for our prudent reserve* while integrating the requests into one overall budget.

Provide input to the CSC related to the financial implications of proposals under discussion and suggest options, as prudence requires.

The Finance Committee makes the motion to approve the overall budget to voting members at CSC.

Apprise the CoDA Board and Fellowship of changing financial circumstances, which might require budgetary adjustments between CoDA Service Conferences.

Review expense reports submitted by committee & board members for adherence to CoDA’s Expense Reimbursement Policy.

Review CoDA's investments for adherence to Conference approved policy.

Review the Expense Reimbursement Policies and Procedures, and propose amendments when needed.


Prudent reserve equals $250,000 or equal to half of the total actual operational expenses for the previous two calendar years, whichever is greater.
