Financial sustainability requires people to work together. If people can see they will be better off working together, they will work together. A shared vision is how people see. However, "vision statements" often have the well-deserved reputation of being mere platitudes will little lasting impact. This session will go beyond the buzzwords, consulting jargon, and “pretty pictures” and feature governments that have taken a different approach to community visions and strategic plans that can be used to guide an effective budget process. Speakers will discuss how to involve the community, define vision and goals, and how to transition from long-term strategic objectives to resource allocation.
