One of the most important jobs in a not-for-profit is the Treasurer, a position that has responsibility for:
- ensuring that all the organisation's financial rules are observed
- all the correct financial procedures are followed and
- all financial decisions are informed decisions based on all the necessary information.
This report - Damn Good Advice for Treasurers - comes from ourcommunity.com.au and explores the 25 questions a not-for-profit treasurer needs to ask.
Note: this resource is written from an Australian point of view. While many of the concepts are universal, be aware that some of the reporting and legal requirements are different for New Zealand organisations, particularly charities.
