If selected as a chapter leader, what key goals would you set, and how would you propose achieving those goals?

As Financial Director, I would work to streamline current processes and communication regarding finances within the chapter committees by spreading awareness of the chapter's financial goals and processes. It would empower sub-committees to take ownership of their individual financial responsibilities. I would promote the chapter as often as possible while assisting as needed promptly. I believe that transparency towards a common goal creates a thriving environment.
