Treasurer Update:

It's been my pleasure to serve as the T33 treasurer for the past 5 years, and I am handing the responsibility over to Doris Hsu. During May, we will be working together, so all requests can go to either or both of us. We will work together to make sure everything is covered. Our emails are and Many thanks to Doris for stepping up to take on this role.

While reviewing the job responsibilities, we've come up with a couple of procedural changes to make the job more manageable.


Up until now, I've been forwarding PayPal transaction receipts to the activity coordinators to inform them of payments. Going forward it is the responsibility of the person making the payment to forward the receipt to the AC.

Mileage Reimbursement:

The activity Scoutmaster or the AC have been sending me a list of drivers for each event, but I have no way of knowing if the driver will submit a reimbursement form with additional expenses. A fair amount of time is spent following up with less than an optimal response rate. Going forward:

Drivers with no other expenses: Send an email to the treasurer requesting reimbursement for driving. If you don't request, your mileage reimbursement will be considered a donation to the troop.

Drivers with other expenses (food, parking, entrance fees, etc): Fill out the troop expense form and email/mail/give to the treasurer. Include all receipts. The expense form can be found in the documents section of the troop website.

Thank you for being a great treasurer the last 5 years Judy!
