Ask District Finance: June 2021

By Linda Patten

This is my last “Ask District Finance” article as my term ends on June 30, 2021. The incoming District Finance Manager is Michelle Toney, a Toastmaster very qualified to guide us through the financial picture. 

The incoming team and I are working on the budget for 2021-2022.  It appears that District Bucks will again be the vehicle for keeping track of the clubs’ incentive awards.  We have learned so much about this process, from winning the award, to tracking the total amount of awards, and to the final step of getting reimbursement when you purchase supplies for the club.

I want to commend those clubs who have used their District Bucks wisely and have brought laptops, microphones, Zoom accounts, gift cards, lighting and so much more to their clubs. 

As we transition our club officers, I would strongly encourage you to sign-up for the new Concur account for your club.  We at the district are doing that for incoming district officers. 

Thank you for a great year – we truly found our voices and made a difference!
