ATTENTION ALL NEW COLLECTORS AND TREASURERS:
The Association's Annual New Collectors and New Treasurers Day will be held Wednesday, May 23, 2007 at the Forbes Municipal Building in Westborough. Classes will be conducted on the upper floor.
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, 2006.
2) Did not attend the Association's Annual School at U. Mass Amherst in August 2006.
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 are not permitted to attend. The Association conducts a separate school program for Staff in September.
A copy of the Program is enclosed, along with directions to the Forbes Municipal Building in Westborough and a registration form. The registration fee of $30.00 includes a continental breakfast on arrival, all classroom materials and a luncheon picnic in a bag. Please register online or fax back the enclosed registration form as soon as possible.
I look forward to meeting you on May 23rd.
