Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a very nice restful holiday.

Early in December the Association Board met with the State Board of Accounts, the Indiana Auditors office, and the Department of Local Government Finance. During the roundtable we discussed the feedback that the education committee has been receiving from you.

As a result, we will be having Regional meetings this March and also smaller breakout sessions on Tuesday of our Spring conference. We will be working with the Education committee on your topics and line up the speakers. Tera, as well as all of the members of the Legislative committee have been busy trying to stay on top of the bills flying in. They too, will keep you updated. We will be getting the registration forms out as soon as the details are wrapped up. But for now, please put the date on your calendar to attend.

  • The northern region will meet on March 22, 2016 in Kokomo at the Kokomo Country Club 1801 Country Club Road Kokomo, IN 46904.
  • The southern region will meet on March 24, 2016 in Franklin, In. Johnson County will be hosting the meeting at their new Sheriffs Training Center.
