GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award recognizes governments that create high quality budget documents that exhibit a strong policy document, financial plan, operation guide, and communication device. New for fiscal years beginning in 2022, GFOA began awarding special recognition status for new categories, including presentation of goals and strategies. This training will provide an overview of GFOA best practices related to establishing goals and strategies and focus on how to present information in the budget document. Examples of budget documents submitted to GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award program that receive high marks from judges will be highlighted and the speakers will provide recommendations for how you too can produce a budget document worthy of "special recognition." Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and get specific guidance on GFOA's award program and award program criteria.
