About

Vets International is a registered charity whose mission it is to use sound veterinary expertise to enhance the health of humans, animals and the environment globally. Our organization is in search of a dedicated board treasurer who is committed to our mission, will act as an ambassador, and is willing and able to provide leadership in the financial life of our organization. That financial leadership requires a combination of skills and characteristics. A great treasurer balances these responsibilities: Knowledge - Thorough understanding of the financial reports. It helps to have some non-profit financial background, which may require some supplemental training in nonprofit financial terminology and requirements. Communications - Able to translate financial information and financial concepts for the board. Financial reports do not need to be presented by the treasurer specifically at board meetings, but the board may need to help to explain and re-frame the reports. It’s also the treasurer’s role to interpret and translate the board’s questions, goals, or concerns about the financial information or financial situation to the staff. Planning - Partner with the President to develop a useful budget. The treasurer can bring great value in preparing for budget discussions and conveying budget information to the board. Budgets are the financial version of an annual or strategic plan and the treasurer is in the best position to make sure that budget priorities and decisions reflect the intentions and objectives of the board. Strategy - Great treasurers go beyond annual budgets, audits, and financial reports to bring financial leadership to the organization. Great treasurers look down the road to find the financial options and decisions needed for longer-term goals and initiate discussions to connect finance and mission.
