The Finance Committee has responsibility for providing oversight for the overall fiscal policies and financial operations of the Society and financial reporting processes that maintain the integrity of the Society’s financial statements. It fulfills its charge by reviewing requested financial reports to ensure sound fiscal practices and the financial integrity of the Society. It semi-annually reviews the Society’s investment portfolio performance, investment policy and cash management program, and reviews staff recommendations to the Board regarding the selection of investment advisors or audit firms. The Committee annually reviews and recommends to the Board an annual budget for the Society and reviews the audit report and presents its findings to the Board of Directors. It reviews all material written communication from the auditors, proposes to the Board solutions for any matters that may be noted as a result of the audit, and periodically reviews the employee benefits plans of the Society.

Benchmarks for 2016-2017:
• Identify funding priorities and complete reports for the Board of Directors based on schedule of activities (October and February);
• Develop report for the ATS Executive Committee and staff evaluating the budgeting process and identifying areas for improvement.
