President’s Message – September 2016

Greetings everyone:

We are almost in the month of September and many of the CAFR accountants are still involved in reporting and looking back at the months in the previous fiscal year; however, we, as a group, need to look forward to a new fiscal year and the opportunities that it presents.

So far for education topics, the Southern Wisconsin AGA Chapter will be hosting a webinar titled Internal Controls and Assessing Risks on September 14th at the State Office Building at e201 W. Washington Avenue, Madison from 1 to 2:50 p.m.

We are currently reaching out to Madison Metro for a speaker regarding their contingent reserve fund for the October 20th luncheon. The potential speaker has not yet confirmed but stay tuned to the updates on our website. We will be taking donations at this time for the Salvation Army. The list, they gave me of needed items are: diapers (larger sizes 4-6), tampons, women’s panties (all larger sizes), gently used suitcases with wheels, and backpacks. I feel that their mission statement, reaching out and assisting individuals and families who don’t qualify for other assistance, is very important.

Ryan Mooney from Baker Tilly has confirmed his speaking engagement to us on January 26, 2017 regarding the latest tax updates.

If you read about a topic that you think will be interesting to hear about at a luncheon or our symposium, please let me know. Well, that is all I have so far. As the weather is cooling down, I hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy it.

Take care,

Mary Laufenberg
