How transparent is your government? GFOA has long advocated for transparency in financial reporting. For governments, this means reporting to a variety of various stakeholders each with unique needs and interests. In this session, speakers will provide their lessons learned and experiences in communicating financial information through a comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR), popular annual financial report (PAFR), website dashboard, social media, or other tool. Speakers will also discuss how to engage stakeholders, be proactive with communication efforts, and the benefits to your government of doing so.
