The following organisations are seeking an Honorary Treasurer:
The Honorary Treasurers Forum
Closing date: 30 April 2019 Based: London
The Honorary Treasurers Forum is looking for a new Honorary Treasurer! We are a membership organisation originally formed in 2004 to provide a source of information, research and knowledge for the Treasurers of charities large and small. It became a registered charity (No: 1118802) in 2007 and is the only organisation to focus specifically on the needs of the Honorary Treasurer.
The mission of the Forum is to benefit the voluntary and community sector by providing networking opportunities and resources to improve the effectiveness of existing Honorary Treasurers and to encourage more volunteers to take up this essential trustee role.
Trustees are required to be active members of the Forum, to attend Board meetings which are held four times a year in London and to attend the Forum meetings whenever possible. The additional responsibilities as Treasurer are not substantial.
We are seeking new trustees and specifically a Treasurer who will bring skills, experience, knowledge and contacts to help the Forum increase membership and encourage more volunteers as Honorary Treasurers into the sector.
