ICSSPE’s financial strategy aims at developing a sustainable long-term plan that balances income and expenses. A team within ICSSPE will be selected and tasked with this process. An audit of all financial statements is submitted to the Executive Board (Article 11.2 of ICSSPE’s Statutes). In addition, ICSSPE’s Treasurer completes an annual report (Ad Article 8.1 ICSSPE Bylaws). Audited financial statements are also to be presented to the General Assembly (Ad Articles 7.1, 7.7 and 11.3 of ICSSPE’s Bylaws).


Prior to implementing any changes, a complete analysis of all revenue streams is to be conducted. Based on the results a new financial plan will be developed. The plan will include a range of measures to secure revenue and manage spending. ICSSPE’s annual financial objectives and key performance indicators are to:


  • Develop a list of 3 to 5 additional viable revenue sources;
  • Submit and complete 3 to 5 grants to identified sources of revenue annually;
  • Submit and complete 3 to 5 research grants annually;
  • Submit and complete 3 sponsorship proposals annually;
  • Procure all membership fees from existing ICSSPE members on time (Ad Article 5 of ICSSPE’s Bylaws);
  • Approach and procure 3 donations from beneficiaries;
  • Utilise ICSSPE’s products and brand to generate income.
