  • Serving on the Executive Committee.
  • Ensuring that an accurate account of the organization's financial status is maintained, including overseeing the necessary day-to-day banking procedures.
  • Presenting a financial statement at every board meeting and at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the organization.
  • Overseeing the preparation of a proposed budget for the next fiscal year for adoption by the board and presentation at the AGM.
  • Keeping financial reports on file. Submitting all necessary financial reports to required agencies.
  • Acting as signing officer, with another officer or Executive Director for cheques and other documents.
  • Ensuring that all employee deductions are remitted.
  • Keeping accurate accounts of all receipts and disbursements.
  • Orienting the new Treasurer.

As EBC is mostly a Policy Governing Board in type and structure, the Treasurer’s duties must not interfere with the Executive Director's financial accountability to the board. The Treasurer is responsible for ensuring finances are accurately reported, but the Executive Director is responsible for making spending decisions, and is therefore accountable for budget deviations.
