This session will explore the duties, responsibilities and challenges faced by a Treasurer of a not-for-profit organization. In addition to maintaining monthly oversight and report presentations, the Treasurer should be actively involved in setting annual budgets and preparing year-end working papers for audits or financial reviews.
What kind of time commitment should be allocated? Are there financial support services that can help to streamline the organization’s operations? What are the Canada Revenue Agency deadlines that must be adhered to?
Take part in the conversation and contribute your experiences. This session is appropriate for both large and small organizations. In addition to those holding a Treasurer’s position, Managers, Executive Directors, Board and Executive Members will find this session useful.
