When our District accounts were audited last year, our auditor was concerned about lots of Group accounts. Many did not meet the required standard, and some we didn’t see at all.
We know that many Group Treasurers and other Group Executive members are parents who have volunteered to help with this vital role, so we’re incredibly grateful to you all. However, we do need to ensure that you have the correct training so you can comply with charity law.
So, we’re holding a workshop on Thursday 8th November 2018 from 7pm-9pm at Wrexham District Scout HQ.
Please can all Group Treasurers and Group Chairs in particular do their best to attend this workshop. We’re also happy for other Group Exec members to come along so you can be aware of what’s required so you can support your Treasurer and Chair.
Our District Treasurer Karen Cheesbrough will be taking you through how to properly track and record your Group Finances.
