Archive September 2012

 
We launched our 2012 CU CPE for CPAs Program with two days (and 14 credits) of courses in September. The classes filled quickly and the participants gave them high marks … again. Over 97 % of attendees agreed instructors were effective and 99% felt that the learning objectives were met. Participants praised the courses as “Very informative. Robert is an expert in this area.” Or, “Very engaging. Kept everyone involved and did great answering questions as they come up.” Several noted that the topics were an “important area!”
Hello all!  I hope this is the start of a great week for each of you.  The Buffs won and the annual external audit is going great.  Who could ask for more? As the external audit is our main focus at the moment, here is a brief update.  Most of the testwork is complete (this is very good news.)  The auditors have a good draft of our annual financial report prepared by Accounting Services in the OUC and will begin their review shortly.  Great work everyone!  The deadline for finalizing the annual financial report is November 15th, so we are looking good, but keep your fingers crossed.
Check your calendars … our next continuing professional education sessions for CPAs and other employees are set for Tue, Sept 11 and Tue, Sept 18.

Congratulations to our new Vice President & Chief Financial Officer, Todd Saliman, and to our new Associate Vice President & Chief Business Officer, Geoff Barsch. We’ll miss former VP Kelly Fox, who is now Senior Vice Chancellor for Budget & Finance and Chief Financial Officer for the Boulder Campus … but we’re excited to be working with Todd and Geoff.
