Are You Our Next Treasurer Or Secretary?

If you like what you see at Millen Farm, and want to contribute to the success of urban farming, then why not join the board.  We are looking for a Company Secretary and Treasurer to complement our team.  More details available here:

Millen Farm is an ACNC registered charity located in Samford and is looking for two individuals to join our board of directors to fill the role of company secretary and treasurer. Millen Farm has some exciting opportunities on the horizon and is seeking motivated people to help bring these to fruition.
 
Millen Farm’s mission is to:

  • Establish a financially and ecologically sustainable urban farming system
  • Develop opportunities for hands-on, formal and informal learning in urban organic farming
  • Provide learning activities that enhance the capacity to make choices between a range of organic agricultural systems (permaculture, biodynamics, organics, biological) rather than a ‘one system is best’ approach
  • Maximise underutilised private and public land for food growing

Company secretary
Responsible for administration of the Board, including board meeting scheduling, minute taking, AGM preparation and keeping regulatory registers up to date. The governance processes of Millen Farm are well documented so an organised person can step in and be supported to become a key member of the Millen Farm board. The current company secretary is available for handover training and ongoing support.
 
Treasurer
Responsible for maintaining the accounting records of Millen Farm in QuickBooks (cloud based), cash flow forecasting, reporting to the Board and paying creditors. Millen farm has established procedures and documentation for the month end process so this will be an easy transition for the bookkeeper or accountant who takes on this role. The existing treasurer will be available for handover training and ongoing support.
 
If you have any questions about joining a supportive team who are trying to make a different in local food production, and think you have the skills in either role, please contact our Chairperson, Jenni Guse at jenni@millenfarm.org or 0437 606 596. If you know someone who may be interested in one of these roles, please share this link with them.
