About the Cash Handling Seminar
The Association of Public Treasurers’ Cash Handling Seminar is a four-hour program 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 Cash Handling Training Manual is the required text for the workshop.  The Manual serves as a model on which a government can base its own program and manual, with a comprehensive set of cash handling techniques, a training syllabus, and instructions on how to develop a manual/program for an individual government. A government’s manual may be submitted to the Association of Public Treasurers for review and certification.  Workshop participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Association of Public Treasurers.
