UMW Hosts Fall FOCUS Conference

The University of Mary Washington’s Office of Finance hosted the Fall 2013 FOCUS (Fiscal Officers of College and Universities State Supported) Conference Nov. 12 to14, 2013, at the Fredericksburg Hospitality House and Conference Center. The two-day conference brought in over 137 attendees from various Higher Education Institutions in Virginia. 

The conference opened with President Hurley sharing his personal experience with higher education. Agenda items included an interactive session on customer service, a tuition differential panel and updates by the Auditor of Public Accounts (APA), Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee (JLARC), and the Department of Human Resources and Management (DHRM). Attendees participated in roundtable discussions on topics such as payroll, financial reporting, ARMICS and accounts payable. Conference participants also enjoyed a visit to the UMW Fredericksburg Campus with dinner at Seacobeck and a special viewing of Spring Awakening, highlighting UMW’s talented students. 

Fall FOCUS 2013 was a great success!  A special thank you to the outstanding Finance Staff, and all others who contributed.
