What Does a Treasurer Get Out of the Job?

Being a treasurer means that you have a somewhat different role to the other Board members, as your work is spread out over the year instead of around the conferences. Moreover, you gain a background in bookkeeping, budgeting, and writing a financial report. As the year progresses, you become more confident in your abilities. Finally, you get an incredible experience from organising these conferences, as you get to meet a lot of new people.
