Best Practices Panel: Planning Successful Community Events
Planning and Partnering for Community Events can be a challenge and rewarding. Come and hear from two of your colleagues who have had great success at planning community events. They will also provide useful templates to follow as you begin to plan your events. Come and learn and take time to share your successes as well. You can't always get want you want...but maybe these best practices will help your district get what you need.

Our friends at the State Board of Accounts don’t care to see your personal tax return or your clean bill of health. But, they do periodically come by headquarters to ensure that your bookkeeping and operations are all above board. SBOA will highlight some new requirements (internal financial controls, contract uploading, etc.) and we’ll be sure there is plenty of time for Q&A.
