Accounting and Business Operations Workshop

Virtual | May 17 – 19, 2021

This comprehensive workshop features a robust program on higher education accounting standards and practices for all institution types. Attend sessions on current, highly relevant topics and best practices in higher education business and finance, including the areas of leadership, data, analysis, tax, information technology, human resources, and personal development.

This program offers a rich environment to share knowledge and network with peers and delivers the same great content of past CACUBO Higher Education Accounting and CACUBO Workshops... all in one event!

Our 2021 Accounting & Business Operations Workshop was offered free to our membership due to the sponsorship of CACUBO’s business partners BKD and Plante Moran.


We want to thank everyone who attended the virtual CACUBO Accounting & Business Operations Workshops (CABOW) on May 17-19, 2021. We want to also thank our sponsors, BKD and Plante Moran, for making this a free event. The comprehensive workshop offered the best content of the Higher Education Accounting Workshop and CACUBO Workshop in one combined event. Attendees qualified for up to 12 CPE. We look forward to hosting the 2022 workshops in person. Sign up below for future updates!
