Question: Treasurer and Fundraising Chair are the same person

Is it a conflict of interest to have the treasurer also be the fundraising chair?

If there are checks and balances in place, this doesn't necessarily have to cause a problem if you don't have very many resources who are willing to volunteer. The treasurer position needs to supercede the fundraising chair one, so when funds are raised, other members from the fundraising committee need to be responsible for counting and reporting the proceeds. The treasurer (as treasurer) needs to verify the totals. As long as these portions of the roles are distinct and there is no rule within your bylaws to prevent the dual role, then it doesn't sound like a conflict of interest to me.
