Communications
Description: 

We may all just seem like "finance" staff to the uninitiated, but the languages/mindsets of accounting versus budgeting staff are often not so readily transferable. Accurately reporting on prior years' actuals and allocating funds for the future are both essential for the financial sustainability of any organization and can be cross-utilized to better inform and improve one another. This session will discuss how to bridge the gap between accounting and budgeting and how staff can collaborate to more effectively complete their individual functions and ultimately better serve their organization.
