IMHO the structure of WMF is not the same structure of a local Chapter.

The treasurer in fact must be the financial director (CFO).

But I think that is *VERY VERY* important that the role of control is 
*DIFFERENT* from the role of executive.

In this case the board must decide to have not a treasurer but a 
"Financial Controller".
