Demystifying financial management for community groups

Wednesday 16 May, 6pm to 8.30pm
Caulfield Park Pavillion — Community Room
Balaclava Road, Caulfield North
Cost: $5 per person (includes light supper)

Glen Eira City Council will host an introductory financial management workshop for community organisations. If you are a committee member or part of a community group, then this workshop is for you.

Facilitator Peter Holdsworth, from Pathways Australia, will provide participants with great insights and practical tools to help you understand:

  • why financial literacy is important;
  • what the three major statements are and what they tell us;
  • how to identify and manage risk;
  • a tour of your audited financial accounts; and
  • five key indicators of a financially robust community group.

Come along and network with other local groups.
