TREASURER MENTORSHIP 2019

Along with the committee positions up for grabs at our AGM on November 12th, we are looking for a Monash student who will still be a student in 2020 and who would like to undertake a mentorship with our Treasurer.

It is important that we have students on our committee, including in the Executive Committee (of which the Treasurer position is one). As a result, our current Treasurer, Alex (aka Alpaca), would like to take on a first- or second-year Monash student to learn the ropes in 2019 and eventually take over the position for 2020.

THE POSITION:
As treasurer, you are responsible for the clubs budget and finance. Being the treasurer of an official sports club with a turnover in excess of $100,000 per year is a fantastic life experience full of real-world knowledge. This is a great experience to list on any resume as it shows responsibility, intelligence and great decision-making skills along with fundamental accounting know how gained along the way. If you have an eye for money and what some real world experience then this is the job for you.

WHY ALEX ENJOYS BEING ON COMMITTEE
Being part of the committee is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. The work carried out by the committee is done by a great group of people who have a great time together both on and off the field. I would encourage anyone interested to run for a position, learn some life skills and have a great time along the way (not to mention the monthly dinners and drinks get together which is a plus).

KEY TASKS?
– Generally being responsible for the clubs financial position;
– Assisting club event organisers with budgeting;
– Budgeting for the year as a whole; and
– Running the bank accounts and accounting books for the club.

HOURS PER WEEK: Pre-season is 3 hours a week; during the season is 1-2 hours per week maximum; offseason is <1 hour per week.
