After 8 years of diligent service our current Accounts Examiner (Council appointed post) May Jenkins GW3OMN has decided to step down. RAFARS would like to express sincere thanks to May for fulfilling this role so professionally for such a long period of time. She will of course remain a dedicated member of the Society.

Council are therefore confirming the vacancy and are seeking applications for the position. Experience of accounting or bookkeeping plus working knowledge of Excel or similar spreadsheets is required but the work involved is checking the accuracy of the information provided rather than origination.

Each month the Treasurer forwards by email the 3 or 4 key documents which require checking prior to confirming they are all correct, or otherwise. The Treasurer does not circulate the monthly accounts to Council until this confirmation is received. At the end of the financial year, 31st March, similar documents detailing the annual accounts also require checking. The final step in the process is a random check of the hard copy documents to ensure the recorded information accurately reflects the actual invoices, expenses etc.

It is an important role which ensures the accounts are accurate, timely and in line with the Constitution. Please submit your application to the General Secretary but if you would initially like to have an informal chat with the Treasurer please feel free to do so at m0mjg@penalter.plus.com
