Mentor the Treasurer
In partnership with Pro Bono Australia, we now offer qualified CPA Australia members the opportunity to add value to their community through the Mentor the Treasurer program.
Through this unique program, qualified CPAs volunteer their time and expertise to mentor treasurers of small not-for-profit organisations. Mentors will be able to build and broaden their skill-sets and personal and professional networks, along with gaining valuable insights in to different not-for-profit organisations and activities.
As a not-for-profit mentee, participation in the program offers treasurers the opportunity to benefit from CPA Australia members’ professional support and guidance which in turn enables the acquisition of new skills and knowledge to fulfill the requirements of the treasurer role.
If a mentee organisation already employs a CPA as their treasurer but still require access to the mentoring tools, you may apply to be a mentor and gain access. Assistance and mentoring under the Mentor the Treasurer program is provided free of charge.
