The Entomological Society of Canada is looking to fill the position of Treasurer, beginning in autumn 2021. Please note that the Treasurer is considered an officer of the Society and is expected to attend the annual meeting of the Governing Board. The Treasurer’s cost of attending this meeting is covered by ESC in the event the Treasurer does not have funding from another source for such expenses.
The duties include, but are not limited to, custody of the Society’s funds, reporting on the finances of the Society when required, submitting a budget to the June Board meeting, submitting an audited financial statement at the end of each financial year to the membership by posting it in the members’ area of the Society’s website, overseeing the day-to-day business operations of the ESC, coordinating the assembly of achievement awards and certificates, and serving as an ex officio member of several committees. Previous experience with financial reporting and/or accounting would be an advantage, as is a general knowledge of the affairs of the Society. Please express your interest in the position to the President, Bill Riel, by 30 September 2021 (ESCPresident@ esc-sec.ca). The final selection will be made by an ad hoc committee convened by the President.
