California Native Plant Society - Santa Clara Valley Chapter

This volunteer is the chief financial officer of the Chapter and a member of the Executive Committee. The Treasurer is responsible for creating and maintaining current, accurate records of the Chapter’s financial situation, including overseeing any other individuals who may assist with those responsibilities. This individual prepares the annual Chapter budget and bimonthly financial statements which are reviewed at Chapter Board meetings. Attendance at all regular Board meetings is required. The Treasurer is responsible for all filings required by the State CNPS office: quarterly sales tax reports and annual inventory and income and expense reports. Other responsibilities are making deposits and paying bills, reconciling bank statements, maintaining logs of donations to the Chapter and memberships received, and responding to financial inquiries. The Chapter currently uses Quickbooks software and it is desired that all candidates for this position will be familiar with or trainable on both that or similar accounting software and its use in a cloud environment. The busiest months those when sales tax reports are due, the month when reports are prepared for the State office, and the one in which the budget is prepared.

The Treasurer is required to attend monthly board meetings. Although meetings are virtual right now, attendance at meetings in Palo Alto, CA will be required when health regulations allow in-person meetings again.
