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.
