2017 Branch Officers Training sessions—update

The two sessions of NALC’s Branch Officers Training scheduled for 2017 are now full.

Branch Officers Training sessions consist of three and a half days of educational seminars tailored to assist branch presidents, vice presidents, treasurers, recording secretaries, financial secretaries and trustees in the performance of their duties.

The training covers the basics for financial officers: taxes; accounting systems and maintenance of proper controls; reporting to the Department of Labor; fiduciary duties under the Landrum-Griffin Act; bonding of branch officers and IRS reporting requirements.

Additional training topics include the NALC Constitution and branch bylaws; branch operations and identifying branch policies; running a branch meeting; maintaining accurate and complete meeting minutes; member notification requirements; record keeping; branch elections and branch dues and how to read a dues roster.

A complete overview of what the training includes is included in Secretary Treasurer Nicole Rhine’s November Postal Record article.

One session of Branch Officers Training will take place Jan. 10-13 in Phoenix. The other session will take place March 6-9 in St. Louis.
