Volunteer Positions Available

Friends PR Consultant

The Friends would like to promote the organisation more broadly and are looking for someone who would like to help Council to achieve this outcome.  Currently, the Friends do very little promotional material and advertising beyond that which is on our website www.arboretumcanberra.org.au.

The volunteer should preferably have experience and skills in advertising, journalism and/or marketing and could undertake this role as a co-opted member of the Friends’ Council or as a volunteer working separately but providing regular, written advice for approval and reports to monthly Council meetings.

If you are interested in volunteering and/or finding out more could you please contact the Friends' Secretary at [email protected]

Assistant Treasurer

The Friends are seeking a volunteer with some book-keeping experience and has available around four hours or so per fortnight to assist with some of the tasks our Treasurer undertakes in managing and reporting on our finances.  Friends operate an on-line accounting system known as Xero which automates the bulk of the processes.  However, there are still a few manual tasks that require attention, such as:
* a monthly bank reconciliation;
* ensuring membership fees and parking passes are appropriately accounted;
* raising invoices; and
* preparation of various account reports.
For more information, contact the Treasurer (0406 378 977 after 4 August) or [email protected] or email the Secretary at [email protected]
