Dear Port Colleagues and Friends:
Welcome to the 2017 WPPA Finance and Administration Seminar!
This year we’ve selected the beautiful Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, Washington as our venue for three days of education, discussion, and networking with your port peers.
This year’s seminar includes presentations from the State Auditor’s Office on cyber security, and ‘What’s New at the SAO’ to include new GASBs on the horizon.
Other topics of discussion will include Being your Own Treasurer, Analyzing Opportunities within Port Districts, Employee Incentive Programs, EDA Grants, Asset Management, How to Manage Difficult Employees, Financial Implications for Retirement, as well as a 2017 Legislative Update.
I invite all port finance officers and auditors, as well as commissioners and executive directors, to join us at the Semiahmoo Resort for this comprehensive educational opportunity!
Linda O’Brien, Chair
Finance and Administration Committee
Director of Finance and Administration
