Treasurer’s Forum

Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 17:30 to 19:15
Fáilte Restaurant, 147 Falls Rd, Belfast BT12 6AF
The Honorary Treasurer in a Third Sector organisation plays an important, but often unsung role. They help the trustee board to fulfil its obligation to provide financial oversight for the organisation. It is often the Treasurer to whom trustees look for advice, guidance and reassurance on all aspects of charities' financial management and reporting. The Treasurer also provides support for the Chair and Chief Executive. Therefore, CO3 have recently set up a Treasurer’s Forum, to provide a platform for advice, support, to share expertise and to promote good practice. The Treasurer’s Forum will be Chaired by Patrick Minne, NI Manager of Charity Bank and Treasurer for the CO3 Board.  
The Treasurer’s Forum is kindly sponsored by Tony Clarke from Clarke & Co. Accountants. The Forum is Chaired by Patrick Minne, NI Manager of Charity Bank.

The inaugural meeting was held on Thursday 30 June 2016 and the forum meets quarterly.
Thursday 6 April 2017
Thursday 29 June 2017
Thursday 12 October 2017

The Forum is open to those who currently, in the recent past or expect in the near future to take on the important role of Treasurer.  It is open to all members within the CO3 Trustee Network.  We see this an important platform to provide helpful information through updates and briefings. 
To register for the first Treasurer’s Forum, please RSVP with Rachel on rachel@co3.bz or 02890 245356
