Spring Conference, 2022!

The Indiana County Auditors' Association was pleased to host our 2022 spring conference April 26-28 in Indianapolis. This was our first Association-wide in-person spring conference since 2019.

Our event opened with an AIC Institute of Excellence class, followed by a full day of speakers from the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance, Auditor of State, Indiana Public Access Counselor, and INPRS. Our Association evening activity was a "Wine and Canvas" event, where we painted a sunset scene on a wooden board in the shape of Indiana. Our conference culminated in the SBOA-called auditor training on topics including the American Rescue Plan Act, enhanced regulatory financial reporting, and new state legislation.

Thank you to all the speakers, vendors, county auditors, and auditor deputies who attended and helped to make this conference a success!

ICAA officers Debbie Stevens and Debra Carnes work the registration table.
