About the Cash Handling Seminar
This four-hour program is designed to train government employees and officials in proper cash handling techniques.  Finance officers, treasury officials, city clerks, and cash handlers are encouraged to attend. The Manual serves as a model on which a government can base its own program, with a comprehensive set of cash handling techniques and instructions on how to develop a manual for an individual government. Workshop participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Government Treasurers' Organization of Texas.
