The Chapter is in need of help with our virtual events, a Treasurer and Field Trip Chair.

These are volunteer positions.

Treasurer

The Treasurer is the Chapter’s chief financial officer and is responsible for creating and maintaining current, accurate records of the Chapter’s financial situation and prepares the annual Chapter budget and quarterly financial statements, which are reviewed at Chapter board meetings. The Chapter currently uses QuickBooks software, and it is desired that all candidates for this position will be familiar with or trainable on that or similar accounting software and its use in a cloud environment. Other responsibilities include making bank deposits, paying bills, reconciling bank statements and responding to financial inquiries.
