About the event
This is the first of two online workshops. You will need to register for both Workshop 1 and Workshop 2.
Even if you feel like you and your committee have a good handle on the finances, this workshop will help you understand more clearly what the reports are telling you about the financial health of your Neighbourhood House, what you need to be looking out for, what financial controls you need, and a range of other vital skills. Financial governance is a key role for your committee; one of the biggest risks you face is complacency and lack of financial awareness and understanding amongst all your committee members. It’s not just up to the Treasurer - everyone needs to know enough to ask the right questions!
