This workshop is essential for unit financial officers who are just starting out in a financial position, or for those who would like a review of the basics of taking care of your unit's finances. Information on items that will need to be turned in to council as well as to government entities will be shared. The focus will be on incoming officers, but everyone is welcome. There will be a Q&A session too, so bring your questions! A separate workshop for more advanced financial officers will be held at a later date.

{Workshop to run approx. 90 minutes}
