Chance to try out the Co-Treasurer position without a full year commitment!

Chance to try out the Co-Treasurer position without a full year commitment!


Our co-treasurer is making a big move to Victoria and will not be able to finish out her term (which ends in January).

This position involves the “front-office” treasury work, writing cheques, depositing cheques, and doing the related paperwork.

The bank we use is TD which has fantastic hours before and after regular work which makes it easy to do a deposit.

Most of the work can be done from the comfort of your couch while watching TV!

The “front-office treasurer” hands off the paperwork to our “back-office treasurer” who does the Quicken book keeping, and generates the reports.

The position will end in January (unless you love it and want to keep it!)

If you are considering this and want to ask any questions or get any reassurance please feel free to contact Kate at kate@ethicalhost.ca
