The Senate Finance Committee is traditionally responsible for reviewing and processing the Professional Development Assistance Program which provides reimbursement for certain education related expenses such as: registration fees and travel to events, conferences and student organization meetings.
Other roles of the committee are to keep account of the Student Senate budget and inform Senate regarding the availability of funds for expenditure. Senator attendance is also monitored by this committee. The Finance Committee (one senator representing each college/program/school at AMC) also sits on the Academic Student Advisory Committee, as well as the AMC Student Fee Review Committee.
These are the traditional and compulsory roles of the Finance Committee.

The Senate Professional Development Assistance Program
A portion of the Student Senate budget is appropriated for providing Professional Development Assistance (PDA) awards to reimburse AMC students for expenses incurred during events related to their educational development. Events attended must have taken place within the United States (no international events will be reimbursed). Each application will be reviewed and decided upon on an individual basis by the Student Senate Finance Committee. Senate will attempt to award funds on an equal and fair basis. There is no guarantee on the award or amount provided. This program is strictly for reimbursement.
There are many students requesting reimbursement, so this is a competitive process.
Therefore incomplete forms will be returned and may not be resubmitted.
Forms turned in late will be docked 25%.
