How to set up a Chapter Treasury

After a DSA chapter first starts up and gets some people showing up regularly, questions about how to open and operate a chapter treasury soon follows. The National DSA is currently not equipped to help you set up a treasury but will hopefully be able to do so in the future. The recommendation from folks who have been around a while is to go to your local bank and open an account there. Make sure that you have at least two separate and loosely related people on the account in case something happens to somebody. Other chapters have had to deal with two treasurers dying very soon after each other, so please be aware that disasters can happen and that you can take steps now to protect your fledging chapter from such things happening later on.
