Overview

Congratulations on your leadership role in organizing an IEEE conference.  As a Conference Treasurer or Finance Chair, the organization has entrusted you with a very important responsibility in the name of advancing IEEE’s mission.

As a Treasurer, you can think of yourself as the CFO of your conference. Like all good CFOs, you’ll want to ensure that you’re achieving two critical objectives above all:

  • Driving your conference to achieve its financial goals and
  • Ensuring alignment with relevant legal and financial regulations, IEEE policies and best business practices

In serving as Treasurer, you’ll be tasked with doing a number of different activities for the event.  Those may include:

  • Developing a conference budget
  • Setting up a bank account
  • Collecting and reconciling registration
  • Review contracts and
  • Ensure tax compliance
  • Track transactions and collect supporting documents
  • Close your conference
  • Prepare for an audit

While this may seem like a long list, the MCE Business Operations team is here to assist you in making the process as efficient as possible.  Each financially-sponsored conference is designated an analyst to help guide them through the conference financial process.
