NEW! CAA Financial Management Conference Call

Join CAPLAW for a new series of facilitated 45-minute monthly conference calls focusing on current fiscal issues faced by CAAs. In each monthly call, CAPLAW financial consultant Kay Sohl will facilitate a discussion of a preannounced topic and participants will have an opportunity to ask questions, share insights, and suggest future conference call and training topics.

CAPLAW is launching the monthly conference calls in response to the fiscal management survey CAA managers completed last fall and to the fiscal roundtable discussion at our June 2009 conference Seattle. Learn more about Survey findings and discussion themes for fiscal officers.
The calls will supplement CAPLAW’s CAA Financial Network e-Forum as a resource for CAA fiscal staff and other CAA managers to share information, provide informal peer-to-peer assistance on financial issues and benefit from financial experts’ input.
