Workshop set for GCofA S-Ts who file LM-2 reports

On February 25-28, 2007, the BLET Education and Training Department will conduct a workshop for all Secretary-Treasurers who file an LM-2 Report for their General Committee of Adjustment. The workshop will be held at the School for Workers, University of Wisconsin-Extension, Pyle Center, Madison, Wisc.

The class will start at 7 p.m. on Sunday, February 25, and conclude at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 28.

During the four-day session, GCA S-Ts will review LM-2 reporting, membership reporting, and filing reporting requirements, bond requirements, computer applications, and changes for 2007. A representative from the Department of Labor will be on hand to answer questions and to help with the electronic signature that is now required.

Included in the training will be a session called "Tips, Tricks and Traps." It will feature examples of problem areas on the LM-2 to help filers avoid mistakes and misunderstandings. Instructors will guide attendees through the LM-2, item-by-item and schedule-by-schedule, to help them understand and avoid the pitfalls of the LM-2.

A special segment of this workshop will focus on the records that must be kept to comply with the new LM-2 form, including itemization of certain expenses as well as estimates of time spent by officers and employees in five "functional activity" categories.
