It is anticipated that following start-up/familiarisation, the normal time commitment will need to be between 2-4 hours per month but this may vary with the time of year and the schedule of any ongoing projects. Additionally, the Treasurer will be asked to attend, or feed a report into, the monthly committee meetings (2 hours, currently via video conference). In the first instance, the incoming Treasurer may shadow a team member to familiarise themselves with the work and the organisational structure.
