Teach Rwanda looking for Board Treasurer

TR is looking for a new Treasurer. We have a paid bookkeeper (also the previous treasurer) to handle the day-to-day finances, so the position primarily requires analysis and  planning (budget, fundraising).

Location can be anywhere, because we use Skype/WhatsApp to participate in board meetings, which are once a month, usually the 2nd Tuesday, at 6 pm Eastern time.

This is a volunteer position, 1-2 hours a week, maybe more at budget time.

The Treasurer is elected at a meeting of the TEACH Rwanda Board to hold office for a two-year term, or until a successor is elected and qualified, and is eligible for re-election for one additional consecutive two-year term.
