Recently, we have been busy with the finances of The West Virginia Bar Foundation. Our Accountant is Katie Cobbs at Brown Edwards in Charleston. Boy, does she know her stuff! She is very talented when it comes to Quickbooks, which is the online tool that the Foundation uses to keep the accounts all straight. She is also a good teacher. Getting us up to speed with Quickbooks was something that she did very clearly and very efficiently, and her help with that and with putting together our monthly reports is very much appreciated.

This time of year is also the time for one of our regular audits. Derek Gibson and his staff at Herman & Cormany are getting us all lined up for that.

You will recall that, in our last BAR BRIEF, we discussed our President Christy Morris setting up a Committee that will look into revamping the Foundation website. We have already gotten two bids for that service, which the members of the Website Committee are now reviewing.Fall is a busy season, and it’s great to start to get back in the swing of things!
