I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! As we say goodbye to 2020 and welcome 2021, I know you probably join me in wishing the new year brings us much more happiness than 2020.
2020 was not all bad. It brought Kim Bauer to OKASBO. Kim is doing a great job with the Treasurer, Activity Fund, and Encumbrance Clerk Virtual workshops. Attendance has been outstanding, and the feedback has been incredible. Speaking of these workshops, please don’t forget the upcoming sessions. The Activity Fund and Treasurer’s sessions will be on January 13th. The Encumbrance Clerk session will be on January 14th. Please use the links below to register if you have not already done so.

OKASBO held its first virtual Fall Conference. By all accounts, it was a success. The attendance was good, and great participation during the sessions. Certificates have been sent out. If you did not receive yours, please contact Kim or me.
Kim is working on two new workshops. One on Purchasing and the other on Human Resources. Please watch for notices about registration for these sessions.
In 2020, OKASBO launched the OKASBO Institute of School Business & Finance. The OISBF will be holding Level Courses soon. There will be three levels and a leadership development course available. COVID has slowed us down, but we are getting ready to roll.
The Board, Kim, and I hope the conditions improve so we can all get back to in-person meetings. However, we have learned Zoom is a good alternative, and many of you are taking advantage of it. Thank you!
