STEWARDSHIP AND FINANCE COMMITTEE prepares the Meeting’s annual budget, in consultation with all committees, for the Meeting’s consideration. We have oversight of the accounting methods used and the adequacy of the financial reports given by the treasurer of the Meeting. (The treasurer is a Meeting member and the Meeting hires a bookkeeper to help the treasurer and committees.) We keep the Meeting community apprised of financial needs. Not every committee member needs to have a head for numbers. The committee meets as needed, but usually more frequently in the fall in preparation for the budget presentation around the end of the year.
