ACAT launches 2021 training schedule

ACAT is delighted to open bookings for our first online training sessions of 2021.

Being a Treasurer: The Basics will launch our new year’s schedule in late January.

Limited places have now been made available on this course which has been split into three separate two hour-long sessions.

We are advising treasurers to book all three sessions sequentially to ensure that they complete the course.

Each session – costing just £12 – will be led by ACAT’s highly experienced trainer, Manny Kemp.

The first Being a Treasurer: The Basics session will cover charity law and the role of trustees and the bookkeeping and finance processes in a church.

This first session will take place on:

Saturday, January 23, 2021 between 10am and 12noon
Monday, January 25, 2021 between 6pm and 8pm

The second Being a Treasurer: The Basics session will cover the topics of budgeting, risk and Gift Aid.

Delegates will learn about the planning activities of budgeting and risk management, and Gift Aid and other tax subjects

The second session will take place on:

Saturday, January 30, 2021 between 10am and 12noon
Monday, February 1, 2021 between 6pm and 8pm

The third Being a Treasurer: The Basics session will delve into the topic of year-end reporting.

It will cover the year-end reporting and independent examination routines required by law.

This third session will take place on:

Saturday, February 6, 2021 between 10am and 12noon
Monday, February 8, 2021 between 6pm and 8pm

ACAT Executive Officer Ashley Ellis said: “The feedback from our Being a Treasurer: The Basics course has always been excellent – and what better course to launch our 2021 training season.

“Once a booking has been made, a member of ACAT’s team will be in touch with full details of how to log in early in the new year.”

Due to staff holidays, these login details will be supplied after Monday, January 4.

The training will be provided by Zoom.

If delegates don’t have an existing Zoom account, you will be prompted to download the free software once you’ve clicked on the link that we’ll provide you with.
