ATTENTION ALL NEW COLLECTORS AND TREASURERS:
The Association's Annual New Collectors and New Treasurers Day will be held Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at the Littleton Town Administration Building, 37 Shattuck Street in Littleton. Registration will be held at the Multi Purpose Room, which is located on the first floor. Parking is available behind the Administration Building.
We have many newcomers entering the profession this year, and we know that the degree of expertise and knowledge demanded of the Treasurer and the Collector is increasing daily. For newcomers especially, New Collectors and New Treasurers Day represents the first step in your formal learning as a Collector or Treasurer. You will find this day to be a good orientation for the Association's Annual School at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst in August, and to our educational program that leads to designation as a Certified Municipal Collector or Certified Municipal Treasurer.
All Collectors, Municipal Treasurers and District Treasurers are urged to attend who:
1) Assumed office after May 10, 2008.
2) Did not attend the Association's Annual School at U. Mass Amherst in August 2008.
You must attend in person to be eligible for school credit. Collectors attending will receive school credit for Course No. 160, Duties & Responsibilities of the Collector. Treasurers attending will receive School credit for Course No. 101, Duties & Responsibilities of the Treasurer. Officially appointed assistants are welcome, but clerical staff is not permitted to attend. The Association conducts a separate school program for Collector and Treasurer Staff in September.
A copy of the Program is on the reverse side of this letter. Directions to the Littleton Town Administration Building in Littleton and a registration form are enclosed. The registration fee of $30.00 includes a continental breakfast on arrival, all classroom materials and a luncheon picnic in a bag. Please fax back the enclosed registration form as soon as possible.
I look forward to meeting you on May 13th.
