GREETINGS FROM PRESIDENT DAWN COVERDALE

Good afternoon: I hope everyone has had a blessed holiday.
The Auditor’s office is busy, ever changing, gratifying, stressful, demanding and challenging but no one is alone! We Auditors’ are diverse, talented, dedicated and most importantly accessible to each other daily.
The Officers met with representatives of the State Board of Accounts, Auditor of State Office, and The Department of Local Government Finance on December 4th to discuss and plan the upcoming year. We discovered there are plenty of discussion topics for conferences but welcome suggestions, if you have something you would like to see at conference or a training exercise please contact one of the officers.
We discussed the necessity of holding Regional meetings and the consensus was not to have them. We have plenty of opportunities to obtain the required training hours due to the many conferences we can attend (see below) this allows the Association to save money and is one less day we have to be out of the office.
