Christchurch Workshop for Treasurers

Treasurers Workshop

Board of Administration – 50 Langdons Road

Saturday 10 June 2017

We have finalised the date and times of a Christchurch based workshops.

Session 1 – Saturday 10 June 2017 – 9.00am to 11.00am

  • Beginner Topics on Xero, Management Reporting and Financial Reporting at Year End plus questions and answers

Session 2 – Saturday 10 June 2017 – 1.00pm to 4.00pm

  • Advanced Topics on Xero and Financial Reporting at End of Year plus questions and answers

We would appreciate people wanting to attend to one of the sessions to let us know which session they wish to attend by e-mailing either peterv@methodist.org.nz or saraha@methodist.org.nz by 30 April 2017.

Please let us know of any questions or topics you would like to address at any of the sessions. We will send out a detailed agenda before the date of the workshop.

While the cost of attending the workshops are free, the Board of Administration is not in a position to cover attendee’s accommodation and travel costs.  If this is an issue for some attendees, please talk to your parish or synod.

Car parking at Langdons Road should not be an issue.  There is parking in the front of the building, in behind the building and also on the Road. Access into the building will only be via the front entrance.  The back entrance will be locked and secure.

We are also looking at using Microsoft Skype to live broadcast the workshops for those who are interested but cannot attend.  More on that later.

Tea, coffee and water will be made available.

 

Will You Need Assistance at the end of the Financial Year in 2017?

The Accountants within the office of the Board of Administration of the Methodist Church of New Zealand are in the process of planning and allocating work during July, August and September 2017.

You will appreciate that it is a busy time and they are wanting to plan their time so that they meet the time frames, for not only the regular Parishes they provide accounts to, but also Parishes that require assistance with their annual accounts.

In an endeavor to plan this work load, could you indicate to Peter van Hout (peterv@methodist.org.nz) if there is a strong likelihood that the Parish will require us to assist them in completing their annual accounts to 30 June 2017.  Could you let Peter know by Friday 5 May 2017 by sending him an email.

Thanks.
