We have now renamed the Treasurers Day as Financial Workshop. The first of this revamped day was recently held at BCS London. This provided the opportunity to networking and discuss anything "financial" prior to the request to submit budgets for SG's and Branches.
The day was borken into two workshop sessions
Workshop 1 - Please can I have some more? – SFR completion and discussion.
What would you do if you were on the CBFC?
Working in groups this gave the attendees the opportiunity to reveiw anonomised SFRs and see if they came to the same conclusion as the Community Board Finance Committee (CBFC)
This proved alot of conversations and in some instances awards were more strict than the CBFC actual awards.
Workshop 2 - Build a budget - Your budget Submission
The groups were given three scenarios to build a budget for an event.
1.CPD Event for Early Careers
2.Evening event with a specialised speaker (not at the London Office)
3.Networking event to entice people to join BCS and welcome new members
This produced topics of covnversation and enabled those frm SG's to reveiw branch actions who have to provied evetns for a variety of people whereby SG's concentrate on one topic.
During the event Rob Deri - Financial Director provied an overveiw of the current BCS Financial situation.
