Campaigns cost money, so Treasurers have a key role to play in ensuring every CLP has the funds they need to run effective, well-resourced campaigns. A Treasurer needs an eye for detail and a head for figures as well as a great understanding of the rules and regulations of party funding. Treasurers are responsible for ensuring local parties have the funds they need to run effective campaigns. This involves setting and monitoring budgets, and often leading on fundraising. They’re also required to keep meticulous financial records, and report on these throughout the year.
