Financial sustainability is more likely if everyone is working towards that goal. However, finance officers sometimes feel that the actions of department heads or independent elected officials are not financially sustainable. At this session, you will hear about how the independently elected sheriff of San Bernardino County and the appointed chief executive officer built a relationship that allowed the County to meet its public safety objectives and be financially sustainable. The lessons you will learn are equally applicable to the relationship between finance officers and departments heads in all types of governments and across all types of functional area, not just public safety.
