Anyone looking to learn about good practice in carrying out the Role of Treasurer in a non-profit organisation.
Appointing a board member to the role of Treasurer is important for a non-profit board. Typically, most board and committee members do not come from financial backgrounds. It is therefore helpful to have at least one member of a Board who understands, and is capable of, communicating to board members the implications of financial decisions taken in the organisation.
Please note that in this course, we will use the term Board to cover non-profit boards and management committees alike. We will use the term ‘organisation’ to cover all types of non-profit entities including companies limited by guarantee, voluntary groups, co-operatives and unincorporated associations.
This course can be accessed for up to 60 days after purchase.
The course is divided into 7 component parts and takes approx. 1.5 hours to 2 hours to complete. Participants should allow for additional time to review the templates which accompanies the course. Topics are self-contained to facilitate micro-learning for the time conscious participant.
1. The Role of Treasurer in Context
In this lesson, we learn about the duties attaching to the role of Treasurer and the collective responsibilities of a non-profit board.
2. Monitoring Income and Expenditure
In this lesson, we consider the important role the Treasurer plays in helping a non-profit Board to effectively monitor income and expenditure in an organisation.
3. Communicating with Non-Financial Board Members
In this lesson, we consider how financial information can be more practically conveyed to board members at meetings using financial dashboards.
4. Managing Financial Risk
In this lesson, we consider the actions a board needs to take to manage financial risk and the practical support a Finance Sub-committee can provide to a board.
5. Planning Budgets and Cash Flow
In this lesson, we take a practical look at the work involved in developing budgets and cash flow projections to help guide performance expectations in an organisation.
6. Crafting Financial Policy and Procedures
In this lesson, we consider the type of financial procedures that may be required to help Boards and managers exert adequate financial control in their organisations.
