We're Looking for a Board Treasurer

March 07, 2022

Open Signal is on the hunt for a board treasurer and finance committee members. Do you know anyone who might be a fit? 

This is an exciting time to be part of an equity-focused organization that is rapidly evolving and experimenting. We are currently taking on a shared leadership structure, operating without an Executive Director and reevaluating the role of hierarchy at our organization. We are also solidifying and updating our financial processes and we are cash-positive and healthy. Our board culture is extremely positive, collaborative and forward-thinking. 

We are looking for a board treasurer who: 

  • Can commit up to 7 hours per month, including board meetings every other second Thursday of the month at 5:30pm (currently remote); and finance committee meetings every third Thursday at 10am (currently and likely to remain remote)
  • Has extensive working knowledge of not-for-profit finance, including reviewing financial statements, spotting red flags and asking thoughtful questions (CPA is awesome, but not required)
  • Is committed to anti-racism
  • Thrives in collaborative, non-hierarchical, and non-dominant organizational culture
  • Is a strategic and innovative thinker
  • Believes that care for others is a collective responsibility

Prior board experience is not required.

Finance committee membership would only require financial knowledge, a desire to be helpful, and ability to attend our finance committee meetings on the third Thursday of the month from 10-11am Pacific by Zoom. 

If you know of any candidates, please complete our board nomination form.

Please let me know if you have any questions and please pass this on, as you’re able.
