Treasurers' roles, risks and responsibilities

Treasurers of “Not for Profits” are often “roped" into a role in which they are unfamiliar.

The Charity, Sports Club, Society or interest group is a virtual “business”, with many inherent business risks.  The Treasurer must be aware of these risks in order to enable him/her to carry out their role and responsibilities properly.

The risks to the Treasurer who doesn’t appreciate the role may be personal liability, fines, ridicule or damaged reputation.

With success in the operation of your organisation comes the reward of successful and growing membership and the satisfaction of a job well done.  The Treasurer’s role in this is significant, as financial control and direction are essential to any successful organisation.

This seminar will assist you to appreciate the Treasurer’s role, the risks, and the rewards of your organisation.
