Follow the Money

Dear Local Leader:

Thank you very much for attending our 2014 Local Government Workshop Series, Follow the Money.  We hope you learned something new and can put it to work in your community.   Working together we can come up with ideas that will help local governments become more transparent and efficient and to prevent fraud and corruption in all levels of government.  We are so  thankful that the  FBI and CPA Society were able to prepare such interesting presentations and we are grateful for their time, expertise and partnership.

If you want to review the CPA Society’s presentation, you can find it here. Check out the CPA Society’s checklist for choosing an auditor and basic internal control measures.

We hope to host more workshops in the future, please let us know what topics you might be interested in by writing to our Public Affairs Director, Phil Rodriguez. 

As always, please contact our office if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns.  Keep in touch!
