UTU offering treasurers’ workshop in February

February 4, 2013

The UTU International is conducting a local treasurers’ workshop near Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 26-27, 2013.

Attendance is limited to 25 registrants.

Those interested in attending the workshop should contact the office of the UTU International general secretary & treasurer to register. Call (216) 228-9400, or email Executive Assistant Nancy Miller at nmiller@smart-union.org. Please register as soon as possible.

While all local treasurers will likely benefit from this workshop, newly elected treasurers are strongly encouraged to attend.

The two-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. UTU International auditors will be available prior to the workshop Feb. 25 for one-on-one training.

The workshop will be held at the Drury Inn & Suites, 20300 E. 42nd St. S., in Independence, Mo. UTU corporate room rates of $65 per night, plus tax, are available for those needing overnight accommodations. Please note that rooms are based on availability and will only be held for our group until Feb. 15.

Reservations can be made by calling Drury Inn & Suites directly at (816) 795-9393. Provide the code “BNSF/UTU” when making reservations.

Training sessions will be conducted by UTU International Auditors Stephen Noyes and Mike Araujo.

Space is limited and attendees will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended that those attending make their hotel reservations at the time of registration.

Attendees should bring a notebook computer and a USB flash drive.
