If you are new to the role of treasurer, have done it for a while but would like to be sure you're doing the right thing, or would like to find out more about being a treasurer this course is for you. If you aren't volunteering as a treasurer but would like to, RVA can then help place you with an organisation to put your new skills into practice
Aims of the workshop
To build understanding of the role of a treasurer in a small voluntary organization
To ensure the ability to deal with the specifics of the finances of a small voluntary organization
To leave the workshop confident about the issues that are likely to face the treasurer of a small organization.
The content covered will be tailored depending on the needs of delegates on the day. However typically attendees will:
Understand their financial responsibilities as trustees
Understand the particular requirements for the accounts of a small voluntary organization
Be aware of corporate governance issues facing small voluntary organizations
Be ready to resolve issues with record keeping and know where to get help if they need it
Be able to determine if the organization they volunteer with needs an audit or independent examination of their accounts
The workshop will be open to up to 12 delegates. It will be aimed primarily at new volunteers who wish to act as treasurers in Reading’s voluntary sector, but will also be suitable for volunteers who are stepping up to the role of treasurer.
Post course support
Each delegate will be entitled to up to one hour’s post course email support to follow up issues covered on the course.
This course will be delivered by Cllr Rachel Eden, ACMA Director
