Adding it up: The roles and responsibilities of a nonprofit treasurer
Abstract: Like its for-profit counterparts, a nonprofit can’t succeed without maintaining sound fiscal health. That’s why the title of “treasurer” is so much more than an honorific.

This article explores the roles and responsibilities of the position and what qualities a candidate should possess. A sidebar explains that communication skills are especially important in the job.
