Finance Working Group

In order to make our year-round events possible and offer financial resources such as grants to our members, IAPS needs to raise funds and allocate this funding to projects wisely. This makes the role of the Finance Working Group central to the operation of IAPS as an organization.

Call for 2022/23 Finance Working Group:

The IAPS Finance working group is in charge of the financial activities of IAPS. Our activities are diverse: We calculate and collect membership fees, create a budget for the next term, award grants, reimburse expenses for IAPS and engage in fundraising. This is an excellent chance for getting experience with funding projects which will also help our LCs and NCs on the ground getting more of their ideas brought to fruition. Working group members can individually choose what they would like to focus on.
