SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County Treasurer’s Office is set to host the Colorado County Treasurer & Public Trustee Association (CCTPTA) 2022 summer conference at Beaver Run Resort next week, from June 27 through June 29.
The Colorado County Treasurer and Public Trustee Association of Colorado was created to further the education of the members and their staffs, to promote professionalism of the members, to assist in improving members' office efficiencies, and to provide for the exchange of information and ideas.
“We’re excited to host sixty-four counties and over twenty vendors for this conference for the first time ever in Summit County,” said Ryne Scholl, Treasurer and Public Trustee of Summit County. “Emerging from COVID, we wanted the opportunity to showcase Summit County to representatives from across the state, and to bring customers and revenue to local business owners.”
The conference will touch on the emerging topics and principles important for Treasurers to increase their ability to serve property owners across Colorado. Topics in the agenda Scholl has created include: business ethics, investing public funds, collections in a virtual world, and a forensic accounting case study of a Colorado municipal government impacted by an internal fraud.
“We are responsible for all county money, bank accounts and investments,” said Scholl. “It is vital that our training focus on the importance of protecting public funds.”
