    Treasurer Training - free places for RNN members

    10:15 - 13:15RVA Community Place

    Third Floor, Reading Central Library, Abbey Square, Reading RG1 3BQ

    Are you new to the role of treasurer of a voluntary and community group, or in need of a refresher session? If so, this training is for you.

    Aims of the workshop

    • To build an understanding of the role of a treasurer in a small voluntary organisation.
    • To ensure the ability to deal with the specifics of the finances of a small voluntary organisation.
    • To give confidence about the issues that are likely to be faced by a treasurer of a small voluntary organisation.

    Learning outcomes: The content covered will be tailored depending on the needs of delegates on the day. However typically attendees will:

    • Understand their financial responsibilities as trustees
    • Understand the particular requirements for the accounts of a small voluntary organisation
    • Be aware of governance issues facing small voluntary organisations
    • Be ready to resolve issues with record keeping and know where to get help if they need it
    • Be able to determine if the organisation they volunteer with needs an audit or independent examination of their accounts

    The workshop will be open to up to 12 delegates. It will be aimed primarily at new volunteers who wish to act as treasurers in Reading’s voluntary sector, but will also be suitable for volunteers who are stepping up to the role of treasurer.

    The course is at our reduced rate of £50 for Reading based charities and community groups. There are a limited number of FREE places for RNN members using the usual promotional code - please contact us at info@rgneighbours.net if you need this code.
