Description: 

Referenda are an important tool for funding the business of local government, but they're hardly straightforward. A government's finance officer should play a crucial role in putting referendum proposals in perspective from the fiscal standpoint. Finance officers can provide a thorough analysis about funding that will help the organization put together a referendum that uses taxpayer money effectively and answer residents' concerns about whether the money is really needed and how it will be spent — without any political spin. In this session, finance officers who have extensive experience with referendums will share their tips and ideas to help you make the most of this funding tool.
