Emphasis will be on the Treasurer’s role and importance of funds management for all Officers. 

This workshop will help participants understand the roles of 4-H Officers and benefits of developing useful skills for their future, including - decision-makings, communication, responsibility, leadership, attention to detail and record keeping. 

The treasurer’s role will be emphasized along with the importance of working together as a team. Treasurer responsibilities have become increasingly important. Because 4-H is a public group, a 4-H Treasurer’s task are quite different from those of a private company’s treasurer or an individual. A 4-H group treasurer is responsible to other officers, members, adult volunteers, Michigan State University and to the public. 

By attending the workshop, participants will learn about: 

  • The Roles of officers
  • Running a meeting; complete with practice!
  • Connecting the role of treasurer with other officers, adult 4-H leaders and MSU Extension staff members.
  • Money handling expectations including the use of receipts, timely deposits, and timely bill payments. 
  • The importance of budgeting. 
  • Appropriate use of funds and fund-raising do’s and don’ts. 
  • Check-writing and reconciling accounts.
  • Tips for creating treasurer reports and annual financial statements.
