NAUPA held their 2012 Holder Workshop and Forum last Thursday and Friday as a part of the 2012 NAST (National Association of State Treasurers) Treasury Management Training Symposium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I had the pleasure of attending to represent my company and to demonstrate the UPExchange system.
Many state unclaimed property administrators were in attendance. This gave the holders a rare opportunity to ask their reporting questions directly. The state administrators, unclaimed property service providers, and even auditors were among those who gave presentations to educate the holders. I attended these sessions and learned a lot. I find that no matter how many years of unclaimed property experience I have under my belt, there is always something new to learn.
The big evening event was a ride on the tramway to see Sandia Peak. The tram ride was the experience of a lifetime. It spans 3 1/2 miles and ascends about 4000 feet to the peak. We ate dinner at a restaurant on the peak. The food was only mediocre but the view of the city lights completely made up for it. If you are ever in Albuquerque, Sandi Peak is a definite must see.
