Finance or similar experience might prove helpful but it is not a requirement. The D.C. Bar’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Finance Department provides ample support to the Treasurer in preparing reports on the operational status of the D.C. Bar and the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center. The Treasurer delivers a report at BOG/BOD meetings on at least a quarterly basis, with substantive assistance from the CFO.
To be clear, the D.C. Bar employs the CFO and the Finance Department to oversee the maintenance of the books and records of the organization. This includes asset management, investments, internal controls related to receipts/disbursements of the organization, all government filings (as appropriate), as well as organizational budgeting, fiscal planning and enterprise risk management.
