It would be best if you could find someone to do the treasurer's job, even if you have to guarantee that you won't give that person any other responsibilities. The basic treasurer's work can be done on three to five hours a month depending on the size of your group. It's very helpful to have one person whose main duty is to keep the finances/paperwork organized and the checkbook up to date. The secretary's job of taking minutes can be parceled out from meeting to meeting, or you can have the vice president be responsible for it. Don't skip the minutes, however; they are the official record of your group's proceedings. If the secretary has other responsibilities, like preparing the newsletter, perhaps the job can be shared by two people to make it seem less daunting.
