Duties of the Post Finance Officer

The Post Finance Officer shall have charge of all finances and see that they are safely deposited in some local bank or banks and shall report once a month to the Post Executive Committee and the Post, in writing, the condition of the finances of the Post, with such recommendations as The Post Finance Officer may deem expedient or necessary for raising funds with which to carry on the activities of the Post.

The Post Finance Officer shall sign all checks disbursing the monies of the Post as authorized by the Post Executive Committee, such checks to be countersigned by the Post Commander.

The Post shall furnish such surety bond in such sum as shall be fixed by the Post Executive Committee.

Post 85 does not have a canteen (bar) or bingo operations, so our accounts are not very complicated. Still, it helps to have someone with business experience, bookkeeping training, or accountant knowledge to hold the position. The Finance Officer will help develop budgets as well as work with fundraising and disbursements.

Applicants may be subject to a background check before bonding.
