Volunteer Treasurer


Do you love the Volunteer Park Conservatory? Do you have a passion for accounting and financial management? We have the perfect position for you.

• Attend one monthly board meeting on Capitol Hill, currently on the third Thursday at 6pm. Most work can be done remotely.

• Serve as the chair of and manage the finance committee

• Work with the contract bookkeeper to ensure and create the appropriate financial reports for the board on a timely basis

• Experience with non-profit accounting, financial management, and Quickbooks

• Excellent communication skills with the ability to explain clearly nonprofit finance policies and procedures to the Board –this is a critical ability!
