2015-2016 Fiscal Fitness Award
Fiscal year 2015-2015 marks the thirteenth year of the OEA Fiscal Fitness Award Program. OEA is excited to continue this program which is designed to increase the Association’s financial performance at both the state and local levels. The award consists of ten criteria of financial practices.
Along with the promotion of best financial practices for their own sake, the OEA intends to provide financial incentives for locals that establish and maintain these practices. Additionally, the clear articulation of these practices provides guidelines for all locals to follow. The establishment of best practices and criteria by which to measure them makes this program an example of OEA’s commitment to continuous improvement.
Locals who submit and meet all criteria for the 1st time for the 2015-2015 Fiscal Fitness Award will be presented with an award check of $2,000 and a plaque for their accomplishment. (Locals meeting all criteria on a continuing annual basis will receive $500 for as long as they meet the criteria. The $2,000 award can be earned only once every five years). The Fiscal Fitness Awards will be given at the May 2017 Representative Assembly, where locals will be recognized for their financial performance in 2015-2016.
As a further incentive to promote best financial practices by local associations, OEA will continue the giveaway started in the summer of 2008 by having a drawing at each OEA District Treasurer’s Workshop, with two winners of a full year of OEA dues, eligible to participants present.
Locals have the opportunity to meet the criteria for the award during the 2015-2016 fiscal year and the submission of applications for the award are due no later than January 31, 2017. This timeline has been adopted so that there is the greatest opportunity for all locals to be involved.
