Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


Association finances - and how relevant is the role of Treasurer? (Webinar)

Register for this event
Date:Tuesday, 4 August 2020
Time:12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presenter:John Peacock, Chief Executive Officer, Associations Forum

Whilst all associations have been significantly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, most will survive due to financial reserves and not being in debt. However, hard decisions will need to be made in uncertain times. This 1-hour webinar will consider:

  • revenue reality: the importance of existing financial reserves and loss of event income from COVID-19
  • accounting fundamental: how well are they understood by Board and management?
  • financial management: who manages finances in volunteer or staffed associations - and should the traditional Treasurer role continue?
  • next steps: cutting back some areas and accelerating others - plus what prices you should charge

Registrations are free for not-for-profit organisations.
