This document is designed to give SIG and College leadership, specifically the treasurer, a quick overview of SIG/College financial deadlines, and processes. Because chapters collect their dues in their local currencies, AIS does not manage their accounts.

For more information on SIG and College financials, please contact AIS Staff at Feedback and questions regarding this document may be directed to the Component and External Relations Manager at
