Greetings my fellow MTAW Members & Associates, I hope everyone had a joyful holiday season and some much needed time with friends and family. I know for some parts of the state, the “blizzard” put a damper on some of our plans. Digging out of 20 plus inches of snow is never fun for anyone. I’m sure all of us “kids” had fun playing in it though.
As I write this letter I can’t help but think how fast this past year has gone. I have enjoyed my time as President of this wonderful organization and look forward to continuing to be an active member in the years to come.
The 2012 Tax Collection Season is now over and we can look forward to preparing for our annual audits, budget adjustments or amendments, and generally keeping an eye on our municipality’s finances and investments. Before we know it, budget preparation time will start and the cycle will begin again.
I have always said that education is an important part of our jobs. With the every changing policies, procedures and laws, there is always something to be learned. There will be several educational opportunities in the coming months and I encourage everyone to find some time for learning. For those that are looking to become certified at the 2013 Spring Conference, please remember to have your applications in by April 1st.
Never forget that we are always stronger as a group, than we are by ourselves and help is never more than a phone call, email or text away.
