Since ACTDEC is a non-profit making organisation it is only required to cover its day to day running costs which are kept to a minimum. The chair and treasurer are unpaid and give their time and services on a voluntary basis. At present the part-time secretary is the only paid employee. The accreditation panel, of course, are paid a fee for each submission they deal with. Other costs include the usual rent and rates contribution, postage, telephone, e-mail and web provision, photocopying, etc. Any surplus is spent on advertising and promoting ACTDEC and its aims. By adopting a careful low cost approach accreditation, moderation and registration fees are kept to an absolute minimum.
