Give Your Chapter Excellence a Boost
Phi Sigma Sigma encourages all chapters to Aim High with CE

Phi Sigma Sigma offers the best ways to manager your finances!
$ Gather the chapter's finance committee- when the bursar, vice archon and MAL meet be sure to evaluate last year's budget and the proposed budget. The committee will also assess budget requests.
$ Compare last year's budget to this year's projected budget- note where money was not used or, in some cases, what budgets overspent
$ Consult committe chairmen- have each chairman submit a detailed budget request (be sure to have each one explain why she is requesting that amount)
$ Consider all-inclusive dues- compare your dream budget (including the out of pocket $5 here and there) to your actual budget. You will find the two are relatively the same. Why not add the extras into the budget?
$ Be sure to incorporate all international fees- see below for details
$ Compare chapter's budget to other Greek organization budgets
Reminder- chapter budgets for the 2012-2013 academic year must be entered into Billhighway by April 1, 2012.
Phi Sigma Sigma has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years and is committed to maintaining this growth while continuing to expand services and programs. While Supreme Council has worked to be good stewards of the Fraternity's finances and has kept dues and fees flat since 2008, the Fraternity now needs additional financial resources in order to continue its momentum. A dues and fees increase will be effective July 1, 2012. Click here for more information.
Chapter Reserve Account (CRA) is money set a side or "reserved" for items to be purchased that will provide an on-going benefit to the chapter. Money held in reserve is based on the collegiate chapter's annual deposit. The primary use of this fund is for housing-related needs. Click here for directions on how to submit request, as well as examples of what the CRA can be used for.
