The EHOA Board needs to appoint a new Treasurer to take over from Jonathan Clarke, who is retiring this year. This is not a particularly time consuming role and a background in accountancy / finance would be ideal.
The Treasurer oversees the accounting, approves/makes payments, prepares simple annual budgets, and reports on financial matters to the Board at the quarterly Board meetings. The book-keeping and accounts review responsibilities of the Association could be delegated to an accountancy firm although that would be a decision for the new Treasurer. The Treasurer is also the Company Secretary and is responsible for Companies House filings and the administration of the AGM.
There is a budget to cover this cost.
