Education and training

DACT Academy

This prestigious two-day event offers a tailored academic program designed to enrich the knowledge of both young treasurers and more experienced professionals. This event focuses on bringing (back) the academic angle to a treasurer’s work while taking into account her/ his day-to-day practice and features presentations by academics from renowned universities from the Netherlands and abroad.

The program encompasses a Meet & Greet, dinner, lunch, and overnight accommodations, all conducted in English. Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate of participation.

The number of participants ranges from 25 to 50.

Other Activities

Women in Treasury

Our vision is to create a vibrant community of successful women who are dedicated to learning, growth, and sharing and our mission is to empower women in Treasury to reach their full potential and achieve professional success by providing a safe space for knowledge exchange and support each other. This network aims to stimulate diversity in Treasury, foster professional development and recognize the accomplishments of women in the workplace. We strive to provide resources, education, and support to empower women in treasury to achieve their aspirations and contribute to the success of their organizations.

Young Treasurers

A specific network group was established at the beginning of 2014: the “DACT Young Treasurers”. This network group wants to offer an informal and, above all, very accessible platform to the "younger" members within the DACT and members who have up to 5 years of experience in the treasury profession. The idea is that you find sparring partners at the right level and that you make contact with enthusiastic colleagues who you can also approach more easily outside the DACT events to exchange ideas about current treasury issues.

Interim Treasurers

A growing number of DACT members are no longer tied to one employer, but they offer their services as interim treasury specialists. This trend is evident in all functions within the treasury profession: cash managers, treasury managers, treasury control specialists, system implementation experts, investor relations specialists, treasury analysts, and specialists in payment traffic. DACT has set up the DACT Interim Treasury Platform for this growing group of interim treasury specialists.

Technical Committee

The Technical Committee deals with relevant law and regulations, and other professional matters. It consists of a minimum of 5 members from diverse disciplines who have many years’ experience in the treasury field underpinned by sound theory (including fiscal and legal). The committee is chaired by Erwin Bastianen (Nike).

Job Vacancy Bank:
DACT endeavours to place on its website as many treasury field vacancies as possible and to inform its members about them.


The Board currently has 9 members who are elected by the General Assembly for a period of three years.
