Auditors' Fall Conference: Get Ready!

 

Mark your calendars for our Fall, 2020 Auditors' Conference.  This year, we are “Rolling the Dice” and our conference will be considered a hybrid featuring both virtual and in-person attendees and speakers.

The State Board of Accounts will host the trainings virtually on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 28-29. 

In addition, the Auditors' Association will host an in-person conference Oct. 27-30 at the Grand Wayne Convention Center in Fort Wayne that will include the SBOA’s virtual training.   

Auditors and staff members will have the option of attending virtually or in-person. The SBOA emailed all county auditors a link to the virtual training and will send the link again prior to conference. The virtual-only attendance will be at no charge. Only those attending in-person will pay the conference fee.

The in-person registration forms were sent out to all county auditors by email on Sept. 22. The registration forms include important information about COVID safety measures we will take during conference.

You can  access the registration form, the "Auditors Got Talent" registration form, and health liability release form by clicking on the following links:
