Due to the rapid spreading of the novel coronavirus, our annual Spring Recorders Conference is to be postponed and rescheduled. We are looking at August 18-20. Check back for updates. The Indiana State Board of Accounts has sent the following letter to all Indiana Recorders:


As you are aware the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is starting to have an impact on governmental activities.  Through discussions with the Recorders Association we realized that there is some hesitation on coming to Indianapolis for the Recorders Conference April 14th – 16th.  The State Examiner understands those concerns and has decided to allow the meeting to be postponed to a later date.  The association has been hard at work coordinating with the downtown Hilton and we have rescheduled the Recorders Conference for Tuesday, August 18th through Thursday, August 20th.

Per the association the Hilton has agreed to move the conference at no penalty to the association or individual recorders who may have already booked their room.  If you have already booked your room the reservations will automatically cancel with no charges to your credit card.  Starting April 1st you will be able to call the Hilton to reserve rooms for the rescheduled meeting.

If you have questions do not hesitate to contact us at


Lanyard Drive!

Attention Recorders! We are having a “lanyard drive” this year at our conference. If you would like to gather up all the old lanyards and plastic badge holders from past conferences, we will have a box at registration to collect them for re-use. (I found nine of the things in my desks! -Eric) This is an opportunity for us to reduce our “junk” and for the Association to save some money by recycling. Thank you very much!


IRA Spring Conference coming up!

All Recorders are encouraged to join us for our annual conference on April 14-16, 2020, at the Hilton Downtown Indianapolis. We are expecting to have an agenda from the State Board of Accounts in early March, and our own detailed schedule should follow soon after. For now, you can find registration forms (for Recorders and vendors) on our Conference Materials resource page.
