Where does your money go?
Funds for the memberships are usually placed in the General Fund to be used for routine expenses such as supplies, postage and venue rent. No one associated with the the IOTFA in any way ever receive any funds other than reimbursements for necessary items. Only the President and Secretary/Treasurer have the authority to write checks on the Contest Fund or General Fund so when a Committee member pays for printing, a band performance, or any contest item then they are reimbursed for what they spend, if they provide us with an invoice. Almost all of our income is spent on the Annual Contest.
