If you’re a numbers person with an eye for details, you might make a great Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for your local association. CFOs play such a crucial role in a local association that Elections Ontario recommends that you have knowledge of accounting or bookkeeping before you take on this role. If attention to detail with words is more your speed, you might make a great Constitutional Chair in your local riding.
If you love building lists and finding patterns in large batches of data, you’d make a great database manager for your local association. Well-managed data can make all the difference in our work as Liberal activists and can even help win election campaigns.
