Announcing The Kirklees Finance Worker Forum

Bringing together finance & accounting staff from the voluntary, community & charity sector.

Wednesday 30th October 2019

12pm to 2pm at TSL Kirklees, 12 New Street, Huddersfield, HD1 2AR

Join us for the inaugural Kirklees Finance Forum, hosted by WYCAS & TSL Kirklees at the TSL offices in central Huddersfield.

The Finance Forum will provide an opportunity for people who work in the Kirklees voluntary, community and charity sector to get together and discuss finance and accounting issues. The Forum is designed to enable us to learn from each other; to provide training opportunities and to offer a supportive network.

At this first meeting we plan to identify common areas of interest, how we might meet in the future and, if time allows, have a focus on what a good Reserves Policy might look like.

Tea/coffee and sandwiches will be provided.

Book now via Eventbrite or Facebook
