Previous Trainings

As a volunteer, you play a key role in maximizing the potential of our programs. You will learn how you fit into the big financial picture of running an association like ACUI. From learning what it means to be a part of a 501(c)3 organization to breaking down the obligations and responsibilities of staff and volunteers, you will gain an understanding of how we move our Association forward.

Originally presented on January 30, 2018, this session was presented by Dave Teske and Zack Wahlquist from the ACUI Central Office.
