HDR Seeks Board Treasurer

Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance is seeking a new board member who will also serve as our treasurer. The Treasurer has an opportunity to help shape the direction of their favorite downtown revitalization organization as well as to ensure the financial health and fiscal responsibility of HDR. 

We have monthly board meetings that everyone says are the most fun in town. The Treasurer is afforded the opportunity to also participate in Executive Committee meetings with the Executive Director, Board President, Board Vice President, and Board Secretary. These meetings get into the nitty-gritty details and some of the most complex challenges so that we can take recommendations to the full board for discussions.  

Board members serve three year terms. Here is what you will be working with us on as one of our integral volunteers:

•    Consult and offer expertise on fiscal responsibility and all tax compliance matters, including payroll tax, sales tax, and income tax issues.

•    Approve expenditures and provide second signature on manual checks.  

•    Attend Executive Committee meetings & board meetings once a month
•    Review monthly bank statements and bank reconciliations.

•    Oversee preparation and filing of the annual 990. 

Interested? Please contact Andrea Dono. We seek to fill this position immediately. There is no application, but rather, a casual coffee with Andrea and our Board President (and possibly other members of our executive committee) to see if we are a good fit for each other.
