Hi Guys!

I hope that you are having a terrific summer and that all is well with your families and careers. We are still aways from fall and cooler weather, so please take care.

We are putting the final touches upon our Sponsorship campaign and do appreciate the generosity from all who support our GTC of IFMA Chapter. Without each of you, our Chapter would not enjoy the programming and activities we have. Thank you!

Please, please consider attending our summer picnic scheduled for August 22. Many hours and tremendous work has gone into making this a fun event and another opportunity to make new and grow existing friendships. Please bring your families and make it a great day!

Randy Rabon, President 2015-2016

September Luncheon

Join us for our September 9th luncheon meeting featuring State Auditor Beth Wood.  Beth will discuss how the Office of State Auditor agency ensures our tax dollars are being spent efficiently and review how they audit programs that affect our personal and professional lives.  The office audits more than $46 billion in state assets and $13.7 billion in liabilities each year. This includes each of the state’s 16 public universities every year and all of the state’s clerks of court offices on a rotating basis to ensure financial standards compliance.  Beth will highlight some cases the agency has worked on and give insight on how the agency operates.   Beth Wood is in her second term as North Carolina’s elected State Auditor.  She is a Certified Public Accountant and long-time public servant with more than 25 years of auditing experience.  Beth served in the State Auditor’s Office for more than a decade before being elected into this position.  She is the first woman elected to the position of State Auditor in North Carolina.  Please note that beginning with September our new luncheon location is Brier Creek Country Club, 9400 Club Hill Dr, Raleigh, NC 27617.
