Region V conducts a number of workshops throughout the year supporting UFARS compliance, payroll reporting, MARSS reporting, office automation and other business-related areas. Training sessions are held periodically on various SMART topics so district staff members have opportunities to increase their skill level or to help train newly hired staff. In addition, Region V staff provides specialized services to individual districts including emergency bookkeeping help, bank reconciliation and assistance in revenue projections to name a few.
Annually, Region V sponsors a Spring Conference for the districts’ business office staff members. A wide range of topics is presented by speakers from many resources.
