Being part of PRSSA exec is fantastic, and you should be really excited about this coming year. As treasurer, your main duties involve managing funds for the chapter and it requires a lot of organization and patience.
You have two funds to manage—the SGA fund and the PRSSA fund. My advice is to use up the SGA fund for all of the expenses first to fully utilize the budget that we proposed the previous year. Dealing with check requests and petty cash requests with both the SGA office and accounting office are simple and very easy to file.
The part where you have to be the most organized is with the dues. Handling such a large amount of money can be pretty intimidating, as it was for me, but if you’re organized and stay on top of things, it will go smoothly.
