Being the volunteer treasurer of any organisation requires commitment and dedication. The role of the treasurer can be very time consuming as often the financial expertise of the organisation comes only from the treasurer.
The role of the volunteer treasurer can take up a lot of time and usually requires more commitment than just attendance at the regular board meetings. At the same time the volunteer treasurer knows this and does not seek recognition; they are often more than happy to make the commitment and take pride in the achievements of the organisation.Westpac also understands this and has established the 2012 Westpac Community Treasurers' Award to recognise and acknowledge the valuable contribution made by volunteer treasurers to the community.
Awards will be given for treasurers in the three following categories:
· Small organisations: For organisations with an annual income of less than $100,000 per annum.
· Medium organisations: For organisations with an annual income of between $100,000 and $1 million per annum.
· Large organisations: For organisations with an annual income of more than $1 million per annum.
The winner in each category will win $5,000 for their organisation and a trophy to recognise their achievements, plus $5000 worth of tools and training from Our Community.
Nominations are due by 26 October 2012 and can be made online by following the link to the Our Community website.
Take the time to prepare and send in a nomination for your volunteer treasurer as they are worth it.
