Course Instructor: Ahmed Badawi, a partner with Badawi & Associates, has volunteered his expertise and time to provide a great educational benefit to financial staff members in your organization.

The course introduces the seminar participant to basic terminology focusing first on the profit oriented entity. As the course progresses, the focus evolves to governmental terminology. The assumption is that the participant has had some experience in the corporate environment and thus will more quickly grasp the basic concepts because of familiarity. Once a basic understanding of accounting concepts is reached, these concepts can easily be applied to the unique requirements of the governmental area.

The Workshop will be presented in four phases:

  • Basic Accounting Concepts
  • The Accounting Process
  • Governmental Accounting
  • Role of the Budget

Attendance will be limited to 50 people. All fees must accompany your registration and be received by the April 11th deadline.
