About the Finance Committee
The Finance Committee provides reports and financial recommendations to the ASA Steering Committee. The group also prepares 3-year financial projections for Steering Committee members to help them make prudent decisions about fiscal policy, revenue generation, and expenditures.
Recommendations can include advice on membership and conference fees, financial matters related to the Journal of Appalachian Studies, input on the annual silent auction, and other items related to ASA operations. The committee also reviews the ASA Endowment policy biennially and makes recommendations for revisions, when necessary. Additionally, the committee provides input on fundraising activities for ASA.
The president, vice president, treasurer, president-elect, and executive director of the ASA are all standing members. Current members include Jeff Spradling, chair, University of Kentucky; Phil Obermiller, University of Cincinnati; Chad Berry, Berea College; Ted Olson, East Tennessee State University; Kathy Seelinger, Marshall University; Roger Guy, UNC-Pembroke; and John Nemeth, Education and Research Consulting. The chair of the Finance Committee is a voting member of the ASA Steering Committee.
