Ms Kirstin Stewart was nominated by Joondalup Lotteries House and has been named on the Commonwealth Bank and Our Community’s National Treasurer’s Honour Roll which is part of Not-for-Profit Finance Week.
HLB Mann Judd Perth Managing Partner Norman Neill said Ms Stewart deserved the recognition for the expertise and hours she has given to the organisation which supports people in her local community.
“Kirstin’s role as Treasurer of Lotteries House Joondalup is key to the success of the organisation fulfilling its charter of providing secure, affordable accommodation for community organisations which provide non-profit human services in the northern suburbs.
“At HLB Mann Judd we encourage our team to support community and sporting organisations by donating their unique skills and experience and we are proud of the work Kirstin has achieved for Joondalup Lotteries House,” Mr Neill said.
Kirstin Stewart has been the Treasurer at Joondalup Lotteries House for 3 years and she also supports other firm initiatives such as Steptember for Cerebral Palsy, while continuing to provide her clients with outstanding financial advice and support.
Kirstin Stewart said the importance and relevance of the NFP sector is the focus of Not-for-Profit Finance Week.
“Not-for-Profits are widely regarded as the backbone of community-based services across the country.
“For me, being Treasurer of Joondalup Lotteries House is a passion project and I am surprised and delighted to be named on the National Treasurers Honour Roll,” Ms Stewart said.
“My name isn’t the only one on the honour role, it appears alongside a small percentage of the thousands of people who donate their time to support not-for-profits which provide essential services to the community.
“I have been fortunate in my life and my career with HLB Mann Judd and that is why I offer my free time to support an organisation that makes a real difference in our local community. That’s what it’s all about – sharing is caring,” she said.
More than 1,300 treasurers from across Australia took part, or were nominated in the 2018 Not-for-Profit Treasurers Awards. Individuals were recognised for their enthusiasm, teamwork, leadership skills, and their outstanding contribution for their respective organisation.
