Volunteer Treasurers to be Honoured
30 August 2012 at 3:40 pm
Unsung and unpaid honorary community treasurers will be acknowledged in the annual 2012 Westpac Community Treasurers’ Awards.
The awards are designed to unearth three community treasurers who ensure good financial management, good financial governance and good financial outcomes for their organisations.
“From those who scribble out their budgets on the kitchen table to those overseeing teams of professional accountants, all of these people have the responsibility of keeping their community organisation’s finances on the straight and narrow. Without them these essential organisations wouldn’t flourish,” Westpac said.
The Westpac Community Treasurers' Awards were launched in 2009 to show appreciation of the immense contribution community treasurers make to their community groups, the community sector.
The winner in each category (small, medium and large) will win $5,000 for their organisation as well as $5,000 worth of tools and training.
Awards will be given for treasurers in the three following categories:
Small organisations: For organisations with an annual income of less than $100,000 per annum.
Medium organisations: For organisation with an annual income of between $100,000 and $1 million per annum.
Large organisations: For organisations with an annual income of more than $1 million per annum.
Nominations are open until 26 October and winners will be announced on 30 November 2012.
