Accounting Specialist Training

This 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 how they differ from other non-profit organizations’ accounting as well as for-profit corporations. Participants will learn daily, weekly, and monthly accounting functions which should be performed. 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 for registration is three weeks prior to the start of the course.
  • The course fee 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.
