August 8, 2012

The UTU International is conducting a Treasurers’ Workshop at its headquarters in North Olmsted, Ohio, Oct. 29-31, 2012.

Attendance will be limited to 24 registrants.

Those interested in attending the workshop should contact the office of the general secretary & treasurer to register. Call (216) 228-9400, or email Executive Assistant Nancy Miller at n_miller@utu.org. The deadline to register is Oct. 12.

The three-day session will include all training and materials at no cost to local treasurers. However, the local is responsible for all other costs associated with the treasurer’s attendance at the workshop. 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 with hands-on training on the responsibilities and reporting duties pertaining to their office, including direct receipts and Winstabs. It will also focus on completion of mandatory filings for LM reports, Form 990 and DOL requirements.

The workshop will be held at the UTU International Headquarters at 24950 Country Club Blvd. in North Olmsted, Ohio. UTU corporate room rates of $78 per night, plus tax, are available at the Radisson Hotel Cleveland Airport, 25070 Country Club Blvd. in North Olmsted, which is conveniently located in the adjacent parking lot to the UTU Headquarters.
