The constitution of MCDS states that the purpose of the society, among other things, is to “cultivate the science and art of dentistry”, and to “promote among themselves mutual improvement, social intercourse, good will and self protection. To this end a Treasurer is elected each year to assist in recognizing these goals.

The Treasurer position is filled by nominations from MCDS Board of Trustees and must be approved by a vote from the MCDS general membership. The Treasurer position is a 2 year term; it is filled in an alternating fashion, along with the Secretary position every other year.

It is the responsibility of the Treasurer to make sure that the society is fiscally responsible.  This includes paying all monies owed on time, making deposits to the society’s bank accounts, correctly categorizing all financial transactions, making monthly financial statements to be presented to the general membership, making sure the society’s taxes are filed on time, and submitting the appropriate financial records to the budget committee, to ensure the next year’s budget is properly formulated.

The following is a check list to assist the Treasurer in running the day to day operations efficiently and in an orderly manner.

After each CE course that results in funds being deposited into our Paypay account, the money should be transfered to our checking account, so that those funds can be accounted for as being attributed to that course.
