Accounting Specialist Training-2019

The Accounting Specialist Training course is designed for both established accounting personnel who wish to hone their skills and new accounting personnel with less than one-year tenure.  It is also appropriate for local council and area volunteers.

BSA accounting procedures will be reviewed and explained on how they differ from other non-profit organizations’ accounting as well as for-profit corporations. Participants will learn daily, weekly, and monthly accounting functions, and reconciliations of asset and liability accounts as well as bank accounts will be reviewed in-depth.

Other topics to be reviewed:

  • Fund accounting
  • Deferred revenues and expenses
  • Classification of contributions – unrestricted, temporarily restricted, permanently restricted
  • Researching and correcting transactions

The deadline to register and submit payment is 30 days prior to the start of each course. Should the deadline fall on a holiday or weekend, it will be applied on the immediate, next business day. 

If we do not have the minimum number of participants registered at the time of the deadline, the course will be cancelled. The minimum number of participants for this course is 5 and the maximum is 10.

The course fee is $775.00 and includes lodging (based on double occupancy) for two nights at the Marriott Solana in Westlake Texas, and meals beginning with dinner on the first night through lunch on the last day. Course fee does not include transportation costs.

If you have registration questions, please contact the Strategic Performance office.
