There are a number of ways to help the Connecticut Horticultural Society (CT Hort) continue moving forward from its start in 1887. Your annual membership is one form of support. Another is to contribute your time and expertise.
At this time, CT Hort is looking to fill the position of Finance Committee Chairperson. This important role oversees the general financial operation and well- being of the Society. The chairperson is supported by the Finance Committee which includes the President, Treasurer and two additional members to be selected by the President.
The Finance Committee:
- Prepares and presents the annual budget ( fiscal year runs from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31) to the Executive Board.
- Ensures the Treasurer’s books are audited and the IRS form for tax-exempt organizations is filed annually by Jan. 15.
- Oversees the Society’s trust fund and provides status reports to the Board quarterly.
- Reviews the dues structure each January. Any changes must be voted on by the membership, as set forth in the bylaws.
If you have the organizational skills and strength with numbers to fill these shoes then please come forward. We could truly use your leadership and guidance. To learn more, please call Cheryl Marino at 860.989.6149 or Brett Isaacson at 860.243.1630.
