NEA Local Treasurer’s Handbook
The NEA has recently updated its Local Treasurer’s Handbook. The manual is very lengthy and generic and because of this, sections can be confusing because they don’t necessarily relate to situations faced by the IEA’s locals. If you would like an electronic copy of the entire manual, please request it from firstname.lastname@example.org. Just be aware of the above.

Early Warning Signs of Fraud
If an “honest” person has opportunity and a strong incentive, it can become relatively easy to take the next step and rationalize a fraudulent act. Proactive encouragement of proper controls at every opportunity will lessen the probability that investigations and accusations will ever have to be made.
