The Value of Membership

"I could not have survived 30 years in school business without the support I've received from ASBO. No matter how much you may think your problem is unique, it's not. I've always found support from colleagues facing the same issues no matter where they work, and I've shared solutions. We have a lot to learn from one another, so I value my memberships in Tri-State ASBO, New Hampshire ASBO, Vermont ASBO, and ASBO International."

School Districts Recognized for Exemplary Financial Reporting

Ashburn, VA – October 2, 2018 – The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) congratulates the 560 districts that earned ASBO International’s Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting (COE) award for fiscal year ending 2017. These districts have met the COE program’s high standards for financial reporting and accountability based on their Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).

“By earning the COE, these districts demonstrate to parents and other community stakeholders that the district is both credible and transparent, which builds trust,” ASBO International Chief Operating Officer Siobhán McMahon says. “The application process itself is beneficial in that districts receive valuable feedback that they can use to improve the quality and clarity of future CAFRs.” Participation in the COE program also can help strengthen a district’s presentation for bond issuance.

Program applicants must submit their CAFR for review by a team of governmental audit and accounting professionals. If the CAFR meets the requirements of the program, the school district may receive the COE award.

The COE award program is sponsored by ASBO International Strategic Partner VALIC, a division of the American International Group, Inc. (AIG). Learn more about ASBO International’s COE program at asbointl.org/COE.
