We Need A Treasurer!!!

Published: Monday, 30 March 2015

This is not a pre-April fools joke!
If we don't get a treasurer for next years PTA 2015-16 board we won't have a PTA.....Seriously.....
No fundraising/spending, no Art Vista/Project Cornerstone, no field trip money/classroom spending for teachers, no Taylor get the point I think.
Here's what the treasurer would do, and you are correct it is a critical role with responsibility, but I ask you, shouldn't it be? 
-writing checks, reconciling our monthly bank statements, making deposit and a few more small things, usually 2 hours max a week….it’s the most straight forward position we have!!!!
Private message us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. about this position, even just to get more information. Don't worry, we will make sure you know what you are getting into. We want this to work for you too, no square pegs in round holes.......
