The role of PTA treasurer carries a good deal of responsiblity, but it is also a wonderful job!
The treasurer is the authorized custodian, elected by the members, of the funds of the PTA association. It is the treasurer who ensure that the unit finances are properly handled. This is a critical job since proper handling of the unit’s money will keep the unit in good standing, as well as maintain its credibility with the school and the community.
It is imperative that the treasurer maintain accurate records. Without good records, individuals involved in collecting and handling the PTA’s funds will not be protected should any questions arise. Standard, accepted financial procedures must be used when keeping records so that proper audits can be conducted. All treasurers should be bonded.
