Tips for a New Homeschool Group Treasurer

Amanda’s board follows a good rule for treasurers. They want a person to serve on the board for at least one year before serving as treasurer.Homeschool leader Amanda Shafer is a woman of many talents. After first serving as her board secretary, she is now switching to serving as their treasurer!

Amanda’s been secretary of her homeschool group, Heartland Homeschool Association in southeast Missouri. But she agreed to a new role as treasurer. In this episode of the HomeschoolCPA podcast host Carol Topp and Amanda discuss:

  • Keeping a master file of important papers
  • Having a calendar at every board meeting
  • What a homeschool organization’s treasurer does
  • A really good policy for new treasurers
  • How often a treasurer should give a report
  • Possible software systems for homeschool groups
  • How to get a free copy of Quickbooks online. Use Quickbooks online for free

 

Amanda’s board follows a good rule for treasurers. They want a person to serve on the board for at least one year before serving as treasurer. “No new hand get into the money!” was how Amanda explains it. That sounds wise to me.

Carol and Amanda met online at the I Am a Homeschool Group Leader Facebook Group. It is a closed group (meaning you have to request to join) of 600+ homeschool leaders from across the USA. You can join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/72534255742/
