Simon Cornelius, CC, CL
Simon Cornelius was duly elected, attended club officer training and more than fulfilled his role. Simon delivered on all parts of the DCP for the treasurer: new members processed promptly, dues renewals handled promptly and smoothly, attending club officer training and participating in club officer meetings. His work as Treasurer supported the work of all officers and helped us finish the year with all 10 DCP points completed!
TREASURER’S DUTIES FULFILLED.
- Simon was superb at the TIMELY PROCESSING of NEW MEMBERSHIPS. During this term he processed all other memberships promptly
- Our semi-annual dues renewal process was elegantly announced, expertly collected and ready for payment on March 1, earning the EARLY BIRD AWARD.
- An important part of the Treasurer’s role is to BALANCE the ACCOUNTS and REPORT TO THE BOARD. Simon kept tabs on our bank account, and built a smart spreadsheet that keeps of current and historical data and provided reports for various categories or by specific dates. It makes board reporting super easy, and allows each officer to look up expenses related to their role. This tool has helped the club better understand the total budget picture and adjust club dues occasionally.
LEADS BY EXAMPLE.
- Attending, participating and coaching are key elements to Simon’s success as a Toastmaster and as a club officer.
- In addition to fulfilling all of the duties of the Treasurer’s role, he mentored 3 new members. Watching Simon mentor is magical. He listens and finds the key to his mentee’s anxiety and helps them refocus.
- He also attended board meetings and trained his replacement with hands on activities in processing new members and accessing the online accounts
- Simon’s holistic hospitality is something all Toastmasters should emulate. He not only welcomes people, he helps them feel comfortable by asking simple questions to find out more about why they are visiting and ties those needs directly to parts of the club or club meeting’s activities. He also follows up with visitors at the end of the meeting.
