Auditors' Spring, 2017 Conference

Hello, county auditors!

Our spring, 2017 conference is fast approaching. Our conference will be May 23 through May 26 at Crowne Plaza Union Station, 123 W. Louisiana St., Indianapolis, IN.

Registration is now underway. Registration forms have been emailed to all auditors. The forms are also available on this site under the "Conference" tab.

This year's conference is being planned by the newly elected Association officers, led by President-Elect Pauline Graff of Elkhart County. Once again, a very informative and fun week is planned. Our new 2017 Auditor Association Directory will also be ready for distribution.

The conference will kick off with an educational workshop, which is being planned by Education Chair and Association Vice-President Patty Ball of Daviess County. This workshop will begin with Morgan County Auditor Dan Bastin presenting an overview of how to navigate state websites and how to access Indiana Code. Following a break, the workshop will continue with a panel discussion on topics of interest to county auditors. We will post additional details as they are finalized.

The conference will continue with Wednesday and Thursday sessions. Planning is underway for the evening entertainment, beginning with a Euchre Tournament on Tuesday night. The conference will conclude with a Q & A on Friday morning and the Auditor Association meeting.

Reminder: The Association would like county auditors to wear their auditor badges to the conference in order to minimize the costs associated with the temporary badges. If you do not have a badge, please contact Roger Bainbridge. You may email him at: Roger's email.
