This year I had the honor of serving as the NWP treasurer. Much of my year has been spent revamping our province chapters in financial terms. Due to unfortunate financial circumstances, I made it my mission to get everyone back on good terms with the central office. This was seen by starting quarterly chapter treasurer meetings. At these meetings, I was able to alert chapters of their overdue bills on the spot. Also, these meetings gave the chapters a chance to exchange information, learn more about budgeting and fundraising opportunities. I also made a financial checklist for the chapters to know exactly what bills they would receive throughout the year and when to expect them. This was designed to help each chapter check their financial status throughout the year. After much of the financial storm settled I was able to focus on improving the province (AKA the fun stuff) !! We were able to throw together a few fundraisers for NWP at the conclave. We will be selling girls hair bows as well as raffling a GCC registration. With the help of Stan, we were able to add a “fundraising” page onto the province website where chapters can go to add their fundraisers to help other chapters. It goes over everything from supplies, monetary investment, etc. This was just added so hopefully, we will get some chapter support! Overall, it was a very productive year and It has been a privilege to represent the NWP as their treasurer.
Respectfully submitted,Monica :)
