About this opportunity:

The Arid Lands Environment Centre (ALEC) is seeking a treasurer to join our Board, a dynamic, smart and diverse team who have fun whilst governing ALEC with integrity for sustainability. We meet approximately monthly, and with the AGM coming up in November we’d be keen to hear from you if you the role appeals to you or if you are interested in joining the Board in another capacity.

- Attends to matters before the Board with care and diligence
- Contributes to strategic planning and the achievement of ALECs vision and goals
- Examines proposals to test whether they are in the best financial interest of ALEC

This includes reviewing financial policies, procedures and financial controls, working with the Business Manager to set an annual budget and financial strategy and ensure that appropriate financial systems and controls are in place.

From time to time, Board members are asked to undertake specific activities outside meetings to help achieve strategic objectives.

- Willingness to become a member of ALEC
