Fiscal Officers Committee

The Fiscal Officers Committee meets to assist PAR members’ fiscal officers in understanding state fiscal reporting laws, billing procedures, reimbursement procedures and ever-evolving regulatory issues. This group meets regularly with the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) financial and program directors and provides valuable feedback to the state regarding rules, regulations, program initiatives, and fiscal impacts. While the focus is for fiscal officers, any PAR member is welcome to come.

Chris Elliot, Chair

Vice President of Finance 
Barber National Institute

One could easily imagine the Elliott Family crest framed in ribbons of adding machine tape. Chris, his three brothers, and his father are all accountants. More than that, however, he credits hard work, a willingness to learn, and the support of others for elevating him to a leadership role with one of Erie’s largest nonprofits.

Chris has been with the Barber National Institute for over 8 years and his current role is the Vice President of Finance. Prior to his time at BNI, he spent 4 years in public accounting where he earned his CPA license. He graduated from Penn State Behrend with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting.

He is most proud of raising his young family, two sons and a daughter, with his wife and for being selected in Erie’s 40 under 40 class of 2020.
