Chief Executive Officer @ Christian Homes Tasmania

Better Boards is pleased to present "Understanding the Role of the Treasurer" in partnership with Glenn Hardwick, Chief Executive Officer @ Christian Homes Tasmania.

The Treasurer plays a key role within the board that can greatly contribute to the success of of an organisation. It is critical to have a clear understanding of what is expected in this role, and to have the knowledge necessary to support the board in its decision-making. The role of the Treasurer on a NFP Board takes on specific responsibilities on behalf of the organisation however this does not necessarily relieve other Directors from their obligations in this area.

What are the specific issues which the Treasurer should consider and how do these relate to the operational arm of the NFP organisation?

This session will look at how the board can ensure that the responsibilities for governance are delivered – either by a Treasurer or by the whole board collectively.

This session will cover:

  • the treasury responsibilities of the board
  • the specific responsibilities of a board Treasurer if appointed
  • how the board should ensure that the organisational reporting meets the requirements

Take this opportunity to tap into the extensive experience of Glenn Hardwick to gain a deeper understanding of what is required in the role of the Treasurer.
