    • Once your budget is drafted by the director, is it reviewed by the treasurer and Finance Committee before presented to the full board? 
    • Does your board have adequate policies and procedures in place to make budget adjustments during the course of the fiscal year? 
    • Does your board have a capital fund, and a related capital fund reserve policy, to save for high-cost activities related to the facility?
