We offer a FREE comprehensive UFBA Brigade Treasurers' Workshop to strengthen your skills and help you gain insights into your role. We'll also introduce the benefits of using Xero - cloud-based accounting software. This system will save you time and money, helping you run brigade business anytime, anywhere.
