Tip of the Month for Club Presidents

Treasurer's Reports do NOT receive a vote for approval
At Club meetings, when the Treasurer gives her most recent report, the President NEVER asks for approval/adoption.

Without a review by someone other than the treasurer (of bank statements, checking activity, receipts, etc.), there is no way to ensure reports are correct as presented. There is no federal, state, local or parliamentary rule that says the Treasurer's report is to be approved/adopted.

The membership has not seen the check book, receipts, etc. that would be necessary to issue an "approval" or "adoption" of the report as correct.

Therefore, the President should ask if there are any questions ─ but does NOT ask for a motion to approve or adopt the report. Once any questions are complete, the President officially states, "The report will be filed for audit". No motion is asked for, nor is any motion for approval/adoption to be entertained by the President.

The treasurer's report should be filed with the secretary and become part of the meeting minutes to be distributed to the membership.

When the treasurer's books are audited/reviewed in accordance with your club's bylaws - approval of that audit report may be given by the membership. When the audit/review report is presented to the club members then the president calls for a motion to accept the audit/review report and the membership then votes on acceptance of the audit/review..   

Roberts Rules of Order, Newly Revised 11th Edition, “The specific duties of the treasurer will vary depending on the size and complexity of the society; but this officer cannot disburse funds except by authority of the society or as the bylaws prescribe. The treasurer is required to make a full financial report annually or as the bylaws may prescribe, and to make such interim reports as the assembly or the executive board may direct.”

Club Treasurers - Please Remember

As your dues come in from members, please send them to the OFRW with the completed membership reporting form. The form may be found in your President's Leadership Manual or online by clicking HERE. As your club collects dues for 2016—please also remember that your club treasurer is to submit $5 for OFRW and $10 for NFRW membership for each person in your club. The ONLY people to whom this does not apply are men — and women who pay their primary membership dues through another Federated Club.
