On September 24th, there was great turnout to discuss the development of the CALS Financial Group. The group is being developed as a way to provide support and information to department-level staff who process all things financial. Around 30 people met and discussed ideas for future meetings. The targeted personnel groups that we hope to include in future meetings are are financial specialists, accountants, payroll coordinators, university service associates, and grants contract specialists. You do not need to have one of these titles to attend or join.
The group plans to meet the second Tuesday of every month. Mark your calendars, the next meeting will be held Tuesday, October 13th at 1:00 PM. Each meeting should last about an hour. The place and next topic of the meeting is being determined.
An email listserve was created for this group and will be the main source of communication. The listserve email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Email announcements and eCALS announcements forthcoming once details are finalized.
If you are interested in joining the listserve and the CALS Financial group, please email Sandy Fowler at email@example.com.
