After several years of generous service, our Board Treasurer has moved on to new opportunities and challenges. To fill this vacancy, the Board is accepting inquiries from qualified individuals interested in serving as Board Treasurer.
Per our By Laws, the Treasurer's duties are as follows:
Section 9. Treasurer: Powers and Duties. The Treasurer shall have general oversight with respect to the annual budget. The Treasurer shall also retain an independent auditor to conduct audit report, if required by law or requested by the Board of Directors. The Treasurer shall also have oversight responsibility for all financial matters (as the Board of Directors may prescribe). Until the appointment of staff*, the Treasurer shall assume the responsibilities detailed in this section.
The Treasurer shall have custody of all the funds of the Corporation, and shall keep or cause to be kept complete and accurate accounts of receipts and disbursements of the Corporation, and shall deposit or cause to be deposited all moneys, evidences of indebtedness, and other valuable documents of the Corporation in the name and to the credit of the Corporation in such banks or depositories as the Board of Directors may designate. The Treasurer shall at all reasonable times exhibit the books and accounts to any officer or Director of the Corporation, and shall perform all such other duties as the Board may from time to time prescribe. At the annual meeting of the Board of Directors, the Treasurer or staff so designated by the Board shall present a report showing in appropriate detail: (1) the assets and liabilities of the Corporation as of a twelve month fiscal period terminating not more than six months prior to the meeting; (2) the principal changes in assets and liabilities during that fiscal period; (3) the revenues or receipts of the Corporation, both general and restricted to particular purposes, the Corporation, for that fiscal period; and (4) the expenses or disbursements of the Corporation, for both general and restricted purposes, during said fiscal period. The report shall be filed with the minutes of the annual meeting of the Board.
The Board recently obtained the services of a professional CPA to manage transaction entry, payroll, and quarterly reporting, so the Treasurer will primarily be responsible for high-level budget development and oversight. The Board is seeking applicants who are:
- Supportive of the mission, vision and goals of Georgia Bikes, Inc
- Knowledgeable about 501c3 nonprofit organizations and their regulatory requirements
- Experienced with budget development
- Comfortable with common accounting software, including Quick Books, Microsoft Excel, and Google spreadsheets
