    Dear NACCA Community,

    We're very excited to share that we are starting to brainstorm for NACCA 2019!

    We're particularly interested in knowing what topics have been on your minds and what issues you have been dealing with.  What ½ day workshops or general sessions would you like to see this year?  Please share any ideas you have with us so we can make the program for 2019 engaging and relevant for all!

    Also, we wanted to mention that we are looking at shifting NACCA to early November this year.  More information on the specific dates and location (all still TBD) will be shared in the coming months as we firm up the details.

    A medium dive into Fringe Benefits has been suggested

    Perhaps we should offer an F & A Long form training. NACUBO was the only place that offered a two day training but they ended it last year. Andres Chan presented at the NACUBO training I attended in 2016.

    Why not a Short Form training session? No one seems to do that training anymore.

    I am in agreement with the Long form training which included federal unallowable training.     Service Facilities is another topic that would be of interest.

    Can we also do a discussion topic or maybe a panel on Sales and Service Income?

    I am also interested in a Sales and Service income topic. Service centers and fringe benefits is also high on my list. Maybe also F&A gray tips and tricks for a decreasing Admin component (where is it going??? And allocation strategies for admin groups that may not benefit the entire university, etc) or UCA...which rooms do you allocate to and how are you identifying them, etc.

    I'm in agreement as well. The loss of that conference represents a sad and significant lost training opportunity.
