October 29, 2019, All Day @ Eastern Carolina Council of Governments
Local elected officials are stewards of the public trust. They are responsible for guiding multi-million dollar county and municipal corporations that depend on numerous sources of revenues and that have multiple layers of policy and management responsibilities. Understanding their financial fiduciary responsibilities is one of their most important duties. This workshop will focus on understanding and responding to the annual audit, maintaining adequate oversight of fund balance including its limitations and flexibility, and knowing the significance of the various communications and reporting requirements of the Local Government Commission. Attendees will learn from real-life examples of internal control challenges and other significant audit findings, and will see how board involvement can help overcome these challenges in ways that secure the local units’ financial stability. Relationships between the state and local governments in managing public funds will be explored.
October 29, 2019, 10:00 AM - 3:15 PM @ Henderson County Emergency Services
From wildfires to ice storms to mudslides to yes, even hurricanes, western North Carolina has experienced a myriad of natural disasters. This workshop will provide information on local government legal authorities during an emergency event, disaster funding sources including the FEMA reimbursement process, and disaster preparedness best practices such as prepositioning contracts consistent with federal procurement requirements. These topics are relevant for all local government elected officials and personnel who may be involved in assisting their community to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a disaster when, not if, the next one strikes. This workshop will be taught by Norma Houston from the UNC School of Government.
