The CCSC Finance Committee is responsible for effectively and responsibly allocating CCSC’s ~$1million annual budget. Most of this money (over $600k) is allocated in May to Club Governing Boards, which then allocate funds to all of the undergraduate student groups. The remaining money is spent by CCSC on school-wide events via class councils and the Campus Life Committee. Throughout the year, the Finance Committee ensures that the internal spending is done correctly and responsibly. Additionally, our committee co-operates a handful of funds which student groups can apply to throughout the year, such as the Joint-Council Co-Sponsorship Committee and Capital Investments Fund. The Committee will also be working with student groups and Columbia administrators to make things simpler and more affordable for student groups.
Finance Committee meetings are every Sunday, from 3:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. in Lerner 505L and open to all interested students!
Every semester, the Communications committee works to compile a record of what CCSC worked on over the past semester. This report is intended to serve as both a record of what Council accomplished, and as a reflection on the ways in which Council can improve in the coming semesters. We hope that you take a look and, as always, please contact [email protected] with any questions or comments. 2014 Fall Semester [&hellip
