COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Fencing invites members with experience in financial planning, management of financial risks, record-keeping and financial reporting to apply to be a deputy treasurer to the USA Fencing Board of Directors.
We particularly encourage individuals from diverse background to consider making an application.
The vision for the deputy treasurer is that this individual will eventually transition into the role of USA Fencing treasurer. In addition to serving as a key member of the Board of Directors, the treasurer also holds a Trustee position on the U.S. Fencing Foundation Board of Trustees. In the meantime, the individual will be given the opportunity to learn from the current treasurer and immediate previous treasurer.
The ideal person for the deputy treasurer role is someone with financial experience and qualifications, especially as a company’s CFO or equivalent position within an organization.
We seek applications by March 21, 2023.
USA Fencing’s Board of Directors could not function without the volunteer service of its members, and we appreciate our community’s willingness to step up and serve.
Interested individuals should use the form below, but those with informal questions are invited to contact USA Fencing CEO Phil Andrews at email@example.com.
