Finance Committee Update November 2021
PCICS has successfully completed our virtual annual meeting. Thank you to all our members and sponsors who supported us this year. The annual meeting has put us on a solid financial footing to continue to support our mission. The PCICS Finance Committee, under the leadership of Lindsey Justice, DNP, APRN, CPNP-AC (PCICS Treasurer), and Michael Fundora, MD (Committee Co-Chair) are continuing their work on a number of issues to ensure the long-term sustainability of the organization. The Committee continues its oversight of the budget, financial reporting, and audits. Work continues to establish guidelines for investments and stewardship of assets.
Over the past several months, the Committee has established the PCICS Foundation sub-committee to plan utilization of the PCICS Foundation and encourage philanthropic donations to PCICS. This work will support ongoing educational courses and other Society initiatives. We also look forward to potentially registering with Amazon Smile, so all members, friends, and family can support PCICS through their online purchases. The finance committee is continuing to work with society sponsors to establish long-term sponsorship contracts and to increase the number of industry sponsors which can support the society and help keep membership and registration fees affordable for all members.
