Management Committee

The SSC is staffed on a volunteer basis - with the exception of our organiser which is a paid position. We have a Management Committee made up of 5 members including our Chair, Secretary and other Executive members.

Treasurer role

We're currently looking for a Treasurer to have a watchdog role over all aspects of financial management, working closely with other members of the Management Committee to safeguard the organisation finances.

In summary, the Treasurer is responsible for:

  • General financial oversight
  • Financial planning and budgeting
  • Financial reporting
  • Control of fixed assets and stock

Given these responsibilities, the Treasurer typically acts as an information and reference point for the Chair and other committee members: clarifying financial implications of proposals; confirming legal requirements; outlining the current financial status; and retrieving relevant documentation.

Key contacts

Accountant who is responsible for Banking, bookkeeping and record keeping.

Organiser and Fundraisers who are responsible for Funding, fundraising and sales.

Time commitment

In "normal" times the committee tries to meet once a month in person and have a call in between. It would be great if the treasurer could come to the majority of these calls (usually last around 1 hour on a weekday evening) however there's no pressure to attend. The number of hours required per week will vary depending on the projects we're working on. There will be more of a time commitment in the lead up to our AGM (usually mid-November) and in the run up to camp (mid-July).
