Of Funds and Financial
Resolution 48-06 was submitted to allow for greater transparency to the Craft and to align current systems and processes to allow for better communication and a clearer understanding of the finances of the General Grand Council.
As stated in the Sponsor Statement, “The General Grand Council has had many changes over the past few years and is working to align the laws regarding finance to facilitate both optimized internal processes and transparency to the Craft.” Some of these changes include a new General Grand Treasurer and a new accounting software.
It is our hope that by more clearly defining the various funds and identifying their sources and uses, we can present a more complete and detailed accounting of each fund.
If you have a constructive suggestion regarding the wording of any of the proposed Amendments to the Constitution or Bylaws, your suggestion may be sent to the Deputy General Grand Master, William G. Snyder, as the Chairman of the Constitution and Bylaws Committee.
Please forward questions and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before July 9, 2021, so that appropriate responses and viable Committee amendments may be presented in due course with the support of the Sponsors and issued to the voting membership in advance of the business session on August 14, 2021.
