The treasury function administers the financial holdings and obligations of an organization. This is a major task in an organization that has millions or even billions of dollars in cash and investments, receivables, payables, and debt. Even in a smaller organization, these tasks are essential to the ability of a business to continue in operation. Consequently, though treasury is an administrative function, it is still one of the most vital parts of a business. The treasurer is responsible for a broad range of activities, which include bank relations, cash forecasting, investments, fund raising, risk management, and even insurance. These are critical, high-risk activities, so the treasurer must also have a detailed knowledge of processes, controls, and treasury management systems. The Treasurer’s Guidebook addresses all of these topics and more, with the intent of giving a new treasurer a solid grounding in how to perform the job.
