This seminar will give you some tools, hints and resources to help your job as a Treasurer be a little bit easier.

 

Some of the areas that will be covered…

 

  • What are your responsibilities?
  • What are the things you must do every month?

  • Best practice
  • Year end audit process

Refreshments will be provided and you will have a chance to network with Community Management staff and other Treasurers at the seminar.
