Branch Officers Training set for San Diego, Baltimore this fall

NALC Secretary-Treasurer Nicole Rhine has announced that two Branch Officers Training seminars will be held this fall.

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.

Branch Officers 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 entails was included in Secretary-Treasurer Rhine’s November 2016 Postal Record article.

One session of Branch Officers Training was set for Oct. 16-19 in San Diego, the other for Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Baltimore.

The registration form for both classes was included in the June 23 NALC Bulletin.
