Many cities find it difficult to accurately complete required financial documents and complete proper procedures for the Annual Financial Report, the budget and the 2013 Oversight law in part because they rely on part time clerks/treasurers who are not able to attend training sessions due to time and travel cost. The Iowa Municipal Professionals Institute at ISU Extension and Outreach, is now offering a new six hours of practical hands-on training on administration and accounting in 6 locations which will minimize travel time and expense for any participant.
This program qualifies for six (6) hours of credit towards IMFOA or IIMC certification programs.
The Municipal Professionals Institute and Academy operated by ISUEO, Office of State and Local Government Programs has been in existence for over 40 years and remains the largest of similar programs in the United States and Canada. The program, which brings participants to Ames each summer for in-depth training, provides the foundation education for various professional certifications. To meet the needs of those unable to attend in Ames, On-the-Road, Budget, Examinations, & Accounting for Municipalities will bring the same high quality education to six regional sites.
2019 Information will be released in a few months. Check back with us at a later date.
