Treasurers' workshop scheduled for Oct. 27-28

Published: October 1, 2015

laptopThe SMART Transportation Division will be conducting a Treasurers’ Workshop at the Drury Inn & Suites Kansas City Airport on October 27 and 28, 2015. Attendance will be limited to 35 registrants, so those interested in attending are instructed to contact Dora Wolf in the Updating Department by calling (216) 228-9400, or by email at dwolf@smart-union.org as soon as possible to reserve a spot in the class.

While all treasurers will likely benefit from this workshop, newly elected treasurers are strongly encouraged to attend. The two-day training session comes at no cost to the local. However, the local is responsible for all expenses associated with the treasurer’s attendance. Lost time or salary, travel, hotel and meal expenses connected with attendance may be reimbursed if pre-approved at a local meeting as an allowable expense of the local.

The workshop will provide local treasurers training on the responsibilities and reporting duties pertaining to the office, including direct receipts and WinStabs. It will also focus on the completion of mandatory filings with the IRS and Department of Labor.

As previously stated, the workshop will be held at the Drury Inn & Suites Kansas City Airport, 7900 NW Tiffany Springs Pkwy, Kansas City, MO 64153.  A negotiated group rate of $79 per night, plus tax, is available and the deadline for room reservations is October 1, 2015.
