This includes ensuring that, at meetings, the Board of Management Committee remains well informed of all financial processes and procedures, that budgets and financial statements are distributed in a timely manner, and that Board of Management Committee members understand the organisation’s financial situation.
The Outdoors WA board are all volunteers that are either working in the outdoors or have a specialised skill set that complements the work of Outdoors WA. We meet on a monthly basis for 2hrs in the evening.
