The Friends of the Dunedin Botanic Garden are seeking a new volunteer Treasurer. The Friends are a registered charity and run the Information Centre and Shop in the Botanic Gardens, as well as raise money to support projects in the Gardens.
Broadly, the role involves the usual Treasurer things:
• Preparing monthly financials and attendance at Committee meetings (we use Xero)
• Filing 2 monthly GST returns
• Paying invoices (online banking)
• Preparing annual accounts for audit
• Dealing with Charities Commission filing requirements
• Supporting volunteers at the Information Centre in use of the till, cashing up, etc.
• Sending out invoices as required, eg annual membership fees , Cruise Ship tours
• Helping out at the twice yearly plant sales
It’s a great opportunity to get some governance experience and be involved with an iconic part of Dunedin. You don’t need to know anything about gardening or plants, just have an interest in helping out and providing a financial point of view. The role would suit someone with an understanding of accounting principles as it’s a wee bit more involved due to the income from the shop.
Any interest, please contact Kathryn Thatcher at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to have a chat and provide more info.
