Board position Hamilton Fringe Trust Treasurer
There are multiple roles available for within our trust. The old trust are passing it on as they have been running the Fringe for more than 10 years. They would like some new people with fresh enthusiasm, and a passionate commitment to Kirikiriroa/Hamilton/Waikato’s art scene to come on board and bring new energy to the festival.
The Treasurer’s main role is to compile the trust’s annual report to the Charities Commission by the due date. This can be done any time between July and December and is a legal obligation.
The report consists of a breakdown of the trust’s (the festival’s) financial activities over the past financial year.
The actual festival expenditure is compiled and presented by the committee-balanced up against the pre-festival budget. The committee is responsible for saving all receipts and records of staff payments etc-people must provide an invoice for their fee etc.
These are passed on to the Treasurer who looks it over, makes sure it all adds up and has enough detail. If necessary the Treasurer will seek clarification or more information from the committee and then will compile the lot in the charities report format online. The report only needs to be done once a year (so it is not a huge time commitment).
The treasurer should then keep the receipts and invoices in a physical file and an online file for the next 7 years. This file can be passed on to the next treasurer if they leave the Trust.
If they would like to be more involved in the committee and commit more time to the festival they would be absolutely welcome. A clear role would be the budgeting and day to day financial running of the festival committee.
This role would suit someone with an eye for detail as they need to be able to spot mistakes.
It would suit someone who has experience working with budgets/funding and has some basic computer skills.
The Hamilton Fringe Festival is an open access arts festival. We support emerging artists as they go through the process of organising, marketing and hosting their events. For some artists our support is most helpful in the marketing sense, as they are included in the 5000 copies of our programme which are distributed throughout Hamilton, for others it is the morale support, support with funding applications, or with applying for permits. We have found that supporting artists in this way builds their confidence, gives them a supportive platform from which to try new things, and builds their experience and skill base.
