Autumn is a Great Time to Start
Set goals. Plan. Order study materials. Start now; don't wait until January! Think positively. Talk positively. Study. Learn. Build a UIL Accounting study notebook. Practice (and make it fun). Attend invitational meets. Take tests from UIL archives. Take more tests. And then take more tests! (Five months from the first day of school, will you wish you had started today?) Feel confident at district because you know you've done all you can do to be ready. Execute plan. Enjoy the sense of accomplishment. Repeat all the above for the regional competition. Repeat again and see you at State Meet!!!
Student Activity Conferences
All four of the 2018 SAC's will be conducted by the State Director. There will be a Basics session (for all levels) that will include elementary problem solving (Prepaid Insurance). This year the Enrichment (Advanced) session will be a demonstration of the solving strategies of a puzzle-problem from last year's State test that also includes several district-level concepts.
Coaches, if you attended this year's Capital Conference, the problems selected for the SAC's will be a repeat. However, it will all be fresh for your students.
Please see the UIL Academics website for the locations and details (September 8, 15, 22 and October 27). Bring your battery-operated LAPTOP OR ELECTRONIC TABLET to view the necessary online documents. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so you can get set up and connect wirelessly (using YOUR Internet service provider) to the UIL Academics website for use during the sessions and to view various PDF files. Some of you had a great idea to PRINT the handouts before you left for the conference (quite smart). PLEASE BRING A PENCIL AND A CALCULATOR. Hope to see you there!
Look for updates to this website in the coming months.LaVerne Funderburk, CPA

Are You Receiving My Email?
Frequently I send an email to high school Accounting teachers and coaches to provide current information about UIL Accounting or to ask for your input. When I send out group email, many are "bounced back," and I have no idea who has received the mail and who has not. If you wish to hear from me, please provide me with your email address; then make sure your school's spam filter will not block what I send. When your email address changes, please let me know, and I will update my contacts. If you are receiving my email and wish for it to stop, just email to tell me, and I will remove your address from my UIL contacts.
Would You Like to Assist with UIL Accounting State Meet in 2019?
If you are a retired high school UIL Accounting coach, would you be interested in volunteering at the 2019 UIL Accounting State Meet? We would love for more volunteers to be involved as conference assistants and graders. Please email me if you are interested. Thank you!
