    Support For Your Committee - Finance Convenor

    A full day workshop, delivered by a Golf Club Finance Convenor Iain Bilsland FCAA & the Scottish Golf Club Development Team, to support your Finance Convenor and those responsible for day to day financial management at your club. 


    The person responsible for the financial management at your club has a daunting task which is why club committees often seek out someone with financial expertise to undertake this role. The challenges that face Finance Convenors are all too apparent, monitoring increasing costs, replacing ageing assets and managing demands from all angles to invest in each area of club operations. There has certainly never been a more challenging time to ‘balance the books’ at your golf club, whilst still securing the viability and health of your club.  

    This seminar will assist Club Finance Convenors/Treasurers and those responsible for the day-to-day financial management at the club to prepare for these issues and to provide guidance on how to achieve best practice in managing your club’s short term and long-term finances.
