Treasurer/Finance Committee: Right People, Right Roles


  • October 23, 2019
  • 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Were you just elected board treasurer or to the finance committee, and you’re not sure what to do? Or are you an executive director or board chair who has a new board treasurer who needs some finance confidence to carry out their role? This session is geared toward helping new treasurers and finance committee members (or current ones looking for a refresher) be successful in their role. We will cover tools and practices that can help board treasurers develop finance skills, ask strategic financial questions, lead board development in finance, and keep the numbers connected to the mission.

Join us at 8:30 am for a light breakfast and time to network before the training begins at 9:00 am.

This training is sponsored by Blandin Foundation.
