  • VO88416
  • Board/trustee role


Description

Largo Library and Community Hub has been operating since 2017 and is a small but thriving volunteer run library based in Lundin Links. It is a place where local people can socialise, attend events and film evenings and also use as a meeting place for activities. They are seeking a volunteer Treasurer to join their board of Trustees.

The Treasurer will be expected to review existing financial procedures, attend monthly meetings of the management committee, present a monthly report on Income and Expenditure, complete online banking transactions and oversee the bank account, make suggestions for funding options for projects and events, and assist in the preparation of annual accounts for independent examination. Your commitment will be about an hour per week, plus attendance at monthly board meetings, on the first Wednesday of the month from 10-11am.

The library is a much-loved community asset, and they are looking for someone to support their plans to make the best possible use of the space and local talent.
