Native American and Indigenous Studies Association

The premiere international & interdisciplinary professional organization for scholars, graduate students, independent researchers, and community members interested in all aspects of Indigenous Studies.

The Treasurer administers the financial arm of the Association and makes key recommendations to Council in consultation with the Finance Committee (which consists of the Treasurer, President, Past President and President Elect). The Finance Committee is responsible for the Financial Health of NAISA and thus includes making recommendations to council regarding present and future financial decisions.

Financial administration includes monitoring bank accounts, recording income and expenditure, monitoring registration and membership, working with the University of Minnesota Press in terms of financial aspects associated with the Journal, providing appropriate information to accountants who file an annual non-profit tax return on NAISA’s behalf, and the provision of a Corporation Commission Annual Report. In regard to the annual meeting, the Treasurer and Finance Committee will ideally work closely with a member of the host committee to determine funding and costing to allow for a successful meeting.
