Interested in becoming the next Treasurer of TEIMUN?
As the TEIMUN treasurer you are, first of all, responsible for the financial health of our foundation. This entails some accounting work, in which you process all payments and budgets.
The budgets for GrunnMUN, TEIMUN and the foundation in general, are important guidelines for the entire board. Obviously, you don’t want to end up losing money in your board year! Apart from the accounting part of the treasurer function, you are actually involved with any major decision within the board, as nearly everything costs money.
This means comparing alternatives, discussing all viable options, in order to organise an awesome conference that is also financially viable. Although the participant coordinators are primarily responsible for contact with participants and applicants, you will have to deal with them as well. Apart from assisting with international payments, the treasurer, in conjuncture with participants coordinator non-western, is responsible for the allocation of financial aid; one of the more grateful tasks!
The function-specific details set aside, being a part of the TEIMUN board for a year is an awesome experience, that allows you to meet many new people from all over the world while being responsible for organising two conferences!
If you find yourself having any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. You can always reach me through firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you all at the Board Interest Drinks at Café the Crown on the 25th of April at 19.30h.
Maurits van der Mark,
Treasurer of the TEIMUN Board of Directors 2017.
