7522 Professional Dues & Organization Membership
A purchase order (PO) request should be done for all registrations/memberships/dues expenses; they should not be submitted with a check request. It would be ideal to do request these purchase orders right at the beginning of the fiscal year so that when the invoice arrives, it just needs a PO number written on it, then forwarded to the Business Office for processing. You will see a benefit by doing PO’s for these, since the purchase order by cost center report will include them when you are looking at what PO’s should be done at the beginning of the new fiscal year.
It is preferable that membership is in the College's name, rather than the individual employee's name whenever possible. Also review membership charges to see if group membership is more beneficial than individual membership.
