i would be happy to participate in a committee like the one George is suggesting -- i think it's a good approach. i've got some credentials in the Finance area, having served as Controller of the University of Minnesota (a $2.2 billion/year operation) and various stints at Coopers & Lybrand over the years.

Hi folks,

To followup on Liz's suggestion, here's a direct proposal:

1) that a small committee of three people (perhaps volunteers or
elected) who are NOT councillors be either be responsible for the
annual budget
2) aligned with #1, and to ensure accountability, the annual budget be
voted upon, and thereby require a majority vote to be passed.

We also believe the Secretary should be an elected position, but that
should be a separate discussion.

Sincerely,

George Kirikos
